Historical Context:
"Broad investigations about the human-nature relationship inform the content of my artwork. I consider the hyper-capitalistic, post-internet age in which I was raised to be a regular underlying subject in my work and an influence on my perspective. It is my intention to ask questions with my paintings, not to attempt an answer. This is a value I bring to my practice so that I may operate in a way that is open to change and learning." -Ruby Henrickson
