Francis Ruyter

American artist Francis Ruyter (Washington DC, 1968) is known for her use of vibrant colours in her large-scale paintings that usual deal with the trivialisation and abuse of the image. This exhibition features works that are appropriations of photographs Ruyter has used as references to create the paintings using monochrome paint and permanent marker. The title of the exhibition refers to the book of the same name by writer James Agee and illustrated with photographs by Walker Evans. Published in 1941, it documented rural life in the United States during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
