RUTH BELLreturn to showcase

My work is inspired by Biblical stories and images. The philosophy of Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism) is a strong influence and my aim is to infuse my tapestries with a spiritual dimension.

I like to make the fibres and colours vibrate together, flowing in and out of each other like a constantly moving and rippling stream, revealing the life source that animates the subjects represented.

Tapestry gives a wonderful spatial effect where objects appear to hang in suspension as if held in place by an inner force.

I use vibrant colours, hand dyed fibres and varied textures in my quest to reveal the concealed energy within physical reality.
