Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
Ruby’s practice is primarily concerned with the reconstruction of familiar forms to present and document the extraordinary as authentic. A variety of media including paper, the readymade and synthetic, biological materials and sounds are collected, manipulated and reassembled to create new ambiguous forms as works on paper, performances, installations and pieces of music. These collages are rooted in natural history and aim to present an alternate folklore where boundaries between human and animal are obscured. By placing herself within her work Ruby creates fleeting portraits which allow for a vicarious existence; the records of these occurrences document different aspects of her ‘Self’, set within her own myths.
Wichtige Projekte / Ausstellungen: 
Recent exhibitions include two solo shows in 2017: ‘The Land Is’ at PAPER Gallery as a result of the Exploring PAPER Residency Scheme 2016. And ‘Ermine’ at Chetham’s Library in Manchester as part of Manifest Arts Festival 2017. Ruby has also exhibited work in group shows at East Street Arts in Leeds, C4RD London and Bury Art Museum and Gallery. Recent commissioned live work includes performances at HOME, Manchester Art Gallery and The Manchester Contemporary 2017.
