OIL PASTELS

1984 | Artist's and private collections.
"(...) Rute’s works are related to shape, are related to colour. They are related (profoundly) to the thinking of fine art. Formal organization.
A systematic work to find the underlying meaning of things. From the absolute white of the 'painting box' to total colour. From the transparency of plastic to the opacity of pastel. But always existing shapes, constructed (here) to balance the passion of colour.
Double issues: the shape that organises, the colour that causes turmoil. Expansion and limits. Passion and structure. Like Rute, like the work synchronised with her body and her head. Tense and solid balance (...)."
