Abstract:

A study in Rippon's extensive repertoire of techniques, Exuberant Earth: Ceramics by Ruth Rippon reveals the artist's range in sgraffito, relief modeling, majolica, porcelain, and sculpture. Rippon's earlier works show the artist's connection to spiritual themes, Biblical tales, mythological beings, and every day personal interactions. Her innate talent for storytelling is especially evident in her figural groupings, art history tableaux, and Pop Art-inspired objects. Altogether, her work testifies to the creative surge in ceramics that occurred during the 1960s and 70s, and which endures today. Featuring small examples of her figurative work, the exhibition gives a nod to the large-scaled figures of women known as Lollies, short for 'Little Old Ladies', which became a focus in the latter years of Rippon's career and are displayed in public spaces throughout the greater Sacramento area. The exhibition also explores Rippon's responses to contemporary events, developments in art, and the work of her regional colleagues. Exhibition: Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, USA (29.10.2.017 - 04.02.2018).
