> DESCRIPTION


David Ruddell explores his own mythology for the journey of life by using the boat form as a metaphor for the passage of the human vessel through time. The physical representation of this symbol is meant to represent the choices we make in our lives.

In this exhibition Ruddell has created works on raw poplar panels and blackboards, including a small series of boats on
children's readymade chalkboards. Ruddell utilizes a palette of rich blues, reds, and yellows, in natural tones that evoke a
symbolic landscape.

David Ruddell's work is in the collections of the Smithsonian American Museum, Renwick Gallery, Washington, DC, the di Rosa in Napa, California, and the Oakland Museum of California, as well as many private collections.
