Ruth Geneslaw - Carved Wood Vignettes

Ruth Geneslaw | Carved Wood Vignettes

Artist’s Statement

My carved and painted wood vignettes serve as vehicles for the exploration of social, political and environmental themes.  I seek to address the hypocrisy, ambivalence, contradiction and hubris of events that touch our lives. 

The scenes convey both humor and pathos, thus reflecting the yin/yang of life.  Some pieces are conceived as visual puns; some examine our use of language in a literal sense, conjuring up some rather absurd imagery, but they are intended to resonate on more than one level. 

To the casual observer, the works appear amusing and toy like; but closer examination reveals an underlying comment on some aspect of the human condition.
