Ruth Barker is a leading Scottish artist based at Glasgow Sculpture Studios, of which she is a member of the board. She graduated in 2004 with a Masters and First Class Honours degree in Fine Art, for which she specialised in Environmental Art. She has since exhibited widely across the UK. Within the fields of text, sculpture and drawing, her work takes varying forms. Each piece represents a journey, through the practical and cerebral processes of creativity. Through art she has explored established themes such as gender, death and mortality, philosophy and language, all of which are informed by her own personal views and experiences.
