Ruth Waldman’s current body of work explores the struggle--and the simultaneous attraction and repulsion--that occurs in the meeting of opposing energies and forces, such as the angelic and the diabolic, the spiritual and the material, the higher and the lower. Her drawings, while intensely contemporary, represent the same artistic synthesis of opposites from which the Minotaur, Renaissance grotesques and the fantasies of Hieronymus Bosch derive.
Ms. Waldman has exhibited her work in various venues in New York, New England and Chicago. She holds a B.A. in art history from Oberlin College and an M.F.A from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She lives and works in New York City.
