Ruth Stenstrom -- Resumé

I began working with large oils in a cool palette of blues and greens.

Studies in New York and Venice brought me to a broader exploration of acrylic and pastel on raw canvas and work with video and electronic music.


Work with performance artist Norm Davis led to a series of large scale installation works as back drops for international collaborations such as Terra Nova, Café Noir, Light-Licht   & Second Stage Chaos.
