My name is Ruth Chase, I live in Northern California and was born and raised in VENICE, CA. I started out as an oil painter that has evolved into a filmmaker, creating multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement. My focus is on positive social change, working with concepts that reflect identity and the value of people.

BELONGING

2018 Nevada City Film Festival

2019 Wild & Scenic Film Festival

The public plays a vital role in the outcome of my work,

taking a journey with me that can last up to two years. I produce multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement.
“Through the West of Lincoln Project I have been able to reconnect with old friends and remember the amazing chapter in my life that is the formative time for who I am now.
You have reignited my deep passion for painting and renewed the value of it in my life.
Love from rainy England”
Sybil Roberson

“I was so touched by your beautiful work on the West of Lincoln Project. The feeling in your studio and the people I met there made me tear up several times. You are doing good work in the world, Namaste”

“What others often don’t understand about people who grew up in Venice during the late 70’s was that, in Venice, you had to be tough; hold your own on the street”

Meta Zimmerman

“I was going to be raised the Venice way, the same way my uncles were raised. I looked up to them. I was Venice Trece, you know V13”

Leonard Duran

“The BELONGING project gives a voice and perspective of the Nisenan Indians, the Native Americans who were here for countless generations before the California gold rush. This project will help raise visibility and awareness of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe”
