Garden of Wind-Blown Seeds
By Ruth Jones
Ruth Jones is an artist who works both in the medium of paint and of fine hand woven tapestry. In addition to developing her unique line of work, she creates site-specific imagery on commission for private, public and corporate clients. Her client list includes the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver and the Governor-General’s residence in Ottawa.
The image at Vancouver City Centre Station depicts a tapestry that was woven blind (from the back), while the weaver referred to the reverse working drawing on the left. When the work was finished, the drawing was peeled back to reveal the tapestry for the first time. The composition here depicts this moment of discovery.
