Traces d’un Passage

« la Genette »

photograph by Albin Tzaut 2006

Drawings from the Cévennes

These drawings are selected from work undertaken during two months in 2006, while the artist was living in the Cévennes, a mountainous region of the Languedoc-Roussillon province in the south of France.

Ruth was inspired by the wooden doors, narrow steps and tiny windows of the traditional stone buildings unique to this region.

She draws with a metre-long stick dipped in ink.
