About the artist: Ruby Bateman is a visual artist, working and living in Hackney, London. Often her work investigates her personal and political identification with 'the mother' and (institutionalised) motherhood, which love and loss has led her to desire. Using a richly colourful and symbolic visual language, she references classicism, the spiritual, and her own fiction. Ruby is fascinated with the alchemic and transformative power of the artist, and how the creative process allows her to connect to a deeper maternal consciousness.
