Ruth Reese unites human with animal, and flora to fauna. Her fantastical humanoid forms become extended, and sometimes overcome as they engage a spiritual agency beyond the human. Surreal and creaturely, Reese\'s clay sculpture lives on the margin of dreams and reach between worlds. Reese invites a diversity of characters into her fairytale tropes. Ruth Reese\'s work is often housed in small chambers, or cabinets of curiosity, that suggest the pursuit and collection of objects bearing an inner knowledge. At present, she is a studio artist living in St. Louis, MO.
