Kathy Ruttenberg

Kathy Ruttenberg is a multidisciplinary artist working in sculpture, painting, and animation. Emerging from New York’s early 1980s East Village art scene, her allegorical paintings contributed to the vitality of the new figurative expressionism of the era. Over the last four decades her work has gradually shifted from painting towards an emphasis on sculpture. Oscillating between the intimate to the monumental, she uses ceramic, bronze, and light to explore themes of ecofeminism, animal liberation, and sexuality. Ruttenberg has had work exhibited in Maternity Leave: None of Women Born, curated by Ben Lee Ritchie Handler, Green Family Art Foundation, Dallas, US; Symbiosis, curated by Beth Rudin DeWoody, Berkshire Botanical Garden, Stockbridge, US; Création contemporaine et céramique, Biennale Internationale de Vallauris, FR; The 5th World Ceramic Biennale Korea, Icheon, KR; Lyles & King, New York, US; Kasmin, New York, US; Margot Samel, New York, US; Miguel Abreu Gallery, New York, US, among others.
