Abstract

Troy Ruffels' work is characterised by its subtly intertwined layers, where observations of the natural landscape are overlain in a richly textured palimpsest. Marked by hand and eye, these landscapes are simultaneously interior and exterior. They emerge from a deep familiarity with place, revisited as both inhabitant and traveller, a perspective informed by Ruffels' anchoring within the North West of Tasmania and his movements around the island. Each work bears the intensity of a specific location and moment while resonating with wider connections and concerns: we glimpse a luminous world where the visible surface is invested with the halo of the unseen.
