Biography

Ruth Marten is best known for her art depicting hair. Her new work has expanded beyond that content to include a host of ideas collected over a long career as an artist and illustrator. Using 18th century engravings, she adds to and embellishes the pre-existing imagery with brush and ink, putting a decidedly different spin on things. Humorous and bizarre, these renewed pictures remake history and kick propriety in the shins.
