Ruaridh Lever-Hogg

Emotional responses to place, events, form or object are what I currently explore as an artist. Being deaf, I am very perceptive to situations where emotional responses are highly visual and I use this as a source of inspiration in my work. Exploring and experimenting with materials to use in my work is important to me as an artist, I use materials that are highly visual to the senses and evoke memory.

Primarily using Oil paints allowed me to fill a space on canvas with thoughts, emotion, and stillness in a highly visual manner. Learning a new technique of expression, painting allowed me to focus without interference, freeing my mind to think and express myself, to look closer and examine the medium, subject and form.
