Ruth Waters is best known for her Sculpture. She works in hardwoods, marble, bronze, and architectonic installations. Her work often turns to issues of human identity, relationships, and interactions. Her sculpture is fluid, dynamic, and charged with emotion. Whether she is addressing human themes or forces of nature, her work celebrates the interconnectedness and complexity of the part to the whole and her reflections on universal truths.
Ruth’s paintings are more personal and intimate. The subtle, atmospheric paintings are concerned with reflection and refraction. The atmosphere that we intimately feel; hot sun, cold wind, driving rain-these sensations are translated into expressions of light, color, and texture.
Ruth’s work has been shown extensively throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and in Brittish Columbia as well as the East coast. She is a renowned instructor and is recognized as a pioneer leader in many Bay Area art institutions. Most recently, she founded the Peninsula Museum of Art in Burlingame where she is the executive director.
