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 the identity and the value of people.
“Participating in BELONGING allowed me to share how I connect children with nature, land, and bring a sense of belonging to a place”
“Beautiful work Ruth! It’s so awesome that there are people like you that grew up in Venice and want to help share the history and stories of this place. I love Venice”
“Her West of Lincoln painting series pays tribute to a population of people who shaped the history of an untamed community, while preserving their historic significance”
“Thank you my Venice Sister! You have a awakened a pride in me that I haven’t felt in a long time regarding our hometown of Venice”
“I relate to the wolf because of its strength, speed, and because me and my brothers were raised like a wolf pack in Dogtown”
