AUG15:  works in progress

I started using selfies my 13 year old daughter took of herself to explore how identity and since of belonging is intertwined for girls and women of all ages. This is how the work is evolving so far.

About the Author Ruth Chase

My work documents the human spirit and the powerful insights that allow people to find a sense of belonging within their community. 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. Self-aware subjects with strong belief systems fascinate me and draw me in.
