Ruby Bateman is a visual artist, working from her home studio in the South West countryside.
Her work often investigates her personal and political identification with 'the mother' and (institutionalised) motherhood, which love and loss has led her to desire. Using a richly colourful and symbolic visual language, she references classicism, the spiritual and esoteric, and her own fiction.
Ruby is fascinated with the alchemic and transformative power of the artist, and how the creative process allows her to connect to a deeper material and maternal consciousness.
Ruby graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2020 with a Print Masters, and was awarded a First BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art Printmaking by The University of Brighton in 2017.
