Ruthie Becker’s work is highly focused on color and the power of color evoking visual pleasure. Born in Cochabamba, Bolivia, Ruthie was exposed to a variety of cultures in her youth, which is reflected in her work. She wants to inspire and encourage an intimate journey for viewers, inviting them to “see into her soul, her longings, and her thoughts.” To Ruthie, the vibrant color in my work represents that awakening ecstatic life force, which she first witnessed as a child. Through col- or, she hopes to bring out the beauty in the mundane. Ruthie has shown in Slack-n-Tickle Gallery, Mod Gallery, and Vala Gallery, among others. Her work was also featured in a recent edition of The Woven Tale Press, and on KCTV-5 about Free Art Friday in Kansas City.
Utilizing found objects as well as repetition in pattern, Max Rosenbaum creates sculptural self portraits, focusing on ma- terial and minimal color. Max’s works merge both fiber processes with sculptural techniques to fabricate strange objects with a weird tactility. In creating these sculptures, Max hopes to accomplish a greater understanding of events he has experienced and relationships he has encountered. He is a 2014 BFA candidate in Fiber and Creative writing at the Kansas City Art Institute.
