closed David Ruff. Seeming Confines

The show

Painter, graphic artist, printer, poet and intellectual. The work of Bronx-born artist David Ruff (New York, 1925 – Turin, 2007), often associated with abstract expressionism, is difficult to categorize as belonging entirely to this – or any other – art movement. Ruff drew inspiration from both nature (“a golden leaf, a pebble, a crack in a wall, a snail, the shape of fields…”) and created form (poetry, literature, music, the visual arts). He participated in the civil rights movement in Alabama, Mississippi, Upstate New York and Washington D.C. and his political activism nourished his art. From Friday, March 8 to Thursday, April 19 (opening  Thursday, March 7, 6 p.m.) Spazio Don Chisciotte-Fondazione Bottari Lattes (via della Rocca 37B, Turin, Italy) hosts “Seeming Confines”, an exhibition of works by Ruff,  who lived in the Piedmont for over thirty-five years, first in the country near Baldissero, then Bagnolo Piemonte, and finally in Turin.
