Ana Ruas

Machadinho, RS, 1966. – Lives and works in Campo Grande, Brasil.
Prêmio PIPA 2018 nominee.

PIPA Online 2015 winner.

Ana Ruas’ work takes a starting point the specificities of the painting medium, which the artist seeks to resolve at times through series of small or large canvases, at times covering wall surfaces with outdoor interventions. These interventions can also occur indoors, in museums and galleries. Her research encompasses, within a conceptual repertoire, space and the inhabited place. In 2016, she began the series “Enchanted Forest”, consisting of large-scaled paintings on canvases which feature the participation of children.
