Ruby Swinney (b. 1992) graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Arts in 2015, where her graduate exhibition was bought by the Zeitz Museum for Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA).
Working primarily with oil on tracing paper, her work seems to step into a parallel world, where strange figures inhabit timeless landscapes. Her paintings evoke our present uncertainties, and our yearning for a vanishing natural world that is growing darker and unfamiliar. Ruby currently lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa.
