Kathy Ruttenberg’s Tree Women Sculptures

Kathy Ruttenberg’s mystical pieces are inspired by woods, animals and nature, leading her to create a wonder world where trees emerge from heads and species merge together. Her unique style opens up a world to us where humanity and nature are synonymous and displayed as one. Her work explores the  theme of comparing the relatively ordered relationships in the animal kingdom with the chaos of those between humans. But beneath all of this she is showing that we are one with nature and whether we choose to acknowledge the fact or not, is irrelevant. Her work is highly textured and colourful with very fine detail that contrasts with the bulkier sculpting. I have learnt from these pieces the important role of detail and feel I need to think about this more closely in my designs.
