Ruth Speer


Dreamlore is a body of work created for a duo show with Edith Lebeau at Talon Gallery, which ran through September of 2018 in Portland, OR.

From gallery directors Susannah Kelly and Neil Perry: “Inspired by folklore, fables, and fiction, Ruth’s series for Dreamlore incorporates familiar iconography that harkens towards an unwritten mythology. One that falls just outside of memory. Blending the ethereal and bizarre, Ruth’s portraits are confident and playful; they have a look of determination and purpose which gives the viewer the opportunity to search through the entirety of the piece for signs and clues.”
