October - November

After training and working as a teacher in his native Switzerland, Rüthi studied Fine Art in London and Amsterdam. He worked in London for several years in publishing as a translator and art director. Since 1996 his painting has been exhibited in the UK and internationally.

"Still life painting has been my main interest in the last 20 years. I have explored the relation of the vernacular and high art in my work whereby I place domestic, 'overseen' objects together with postcards of reproductions of paintings."

"The combination of 'reflected' colour of an object and 'embedded' pigment of a colour reproduction and the use of a 'real' object and a 'flat' reproduction has been expanded when I started in 2016 to produce works like the winning work at the Oriel Davies Open The Commune of Painted Artist', made of 64 small paintings based on colour lithographs from the 1930's."

Andreas Rüthi is represented by Galerie Hammelehle & Ahrens, Cologne, Galerie Brigitte Weiss, Zürich and Niagara Galleries, Melbourne, Australia. Progress
