Sandra Rutter is a contemporary artist based in the North East of England. She completed her BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art in 2011.
Her paintings have a subtle suggestion of landscape, blurring the lines between the actual and the abstract; and are conveyed through her use of intense colour, layers and texture. Most of her work is stripped of any identity leaving it elusive and open to personal interpretation.
"A lot of my work takes on a landscape form, but when I start painting I don't necessarily know how I want the finished painting to look; it develops and changes as I work. The starting point is easy as I am 'just going with the flow' getting to know the canvas, but as the painting progresses and emerges, it becomes more challenging, building up the many layers, scraping back and reworking until it is finally finished. This can be over a period of days, weeks and even months."
