OUT OF RUBBLE: Women's Voices and the Transformational Power of the Found Object
Exhibition | Nov. 2 to Dec. 14
Gallery Talk | Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 3:30 PM | Reception to follow
The work of sculptor Ruth Rosner creates evocative female figures from materials she collects and transforms in her global travels.
“Beginning with the face, I work intuitively, excavating from the inside out,” Rosner has said. “I incorporate found materials into the figures as I construct forms with wire, plaster, and clay, some from volcanic ash. These are women of all races, ages, rising out of bare bones construction materials, materials from the ground, objects rusted or worn.”
The resulting figures stand as guardians, oracles, voices for the voiceless and unheard, she continued.
Rosner, based in Brookline, has been featured in countless Boston-area galleries and exhibitions and her work has been profiled in numerous arts publications.
