Ink and colored pencil on paper

2011

Like many visual artists, Ruth is influenced by nature. But as a former graphic designer, she also has a multi-fascination with Japanese prints, art nouveau, labyrinth art and calligraphy. Mixed in is a soft underlying of eastern philosophies and a deep love for the craft of slow drawing and free-form, minimal abstractions.

Her compositions are very simple in concept, yet the intricacy of the pen work creates an intriguing, intimacy for the viewer. Sykes is fascinated by the microcosmic compositions found in nature, yet she is not interested in duplicating them per se. Using a minimal color pallette she starts with intricate ink drawings on smooth Bristol paper.  Several layers of colored pencil are then applied and burnished to create a soft, solid sheen.

 

Sykes is a native of Wisconsin currently living in Savannah. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a B.A. in art. Her specializations were graphic design and illustration. She had a long, successful career in publishing and studio work as a graphic artist. For the past 8 years She has concentrated on her own work.
