‘Breathing Space has been over a year in the making.

My work has evolved from my Visible, Invisible, Veiled body of work which explored natures broken grids.

I have changed the format and moved from squares to rectangles – long, thin and wide.

Trees, forests and walking in the woods remain essential influences.

Now I’m trying to draw different aspects together: elements of and meanings from the ancient ways, linked with Christianity and my experiences of places, including Cathedrals, Buddhist Stupas, Hindu Temples, Stone Circles, the Labyrinth at Chartres – always coming back to nature.

It’s my way of asking questions and trying to make sense of things, whilst celebrating life on earth.

And here’s the question I ask in relation to my current work:

Did cathedrals, temples, stupas and labyrinths originate in the forest?

Come and experience for yourself……..’      Ruth Dent
