Ruby Lescott – 317 Kennington Road, Kennington SE11 4QE

Ruby Lescott graduated in painting from Camberwell Art School and then taught in a special school for children suffering from emotional and behavioural problems. During that time Ruby continued to work mainly in the mediums of pastel and etching, but on leaving teaching she has returned to painting.

Her subject matter has ranged from the vast expanses of the Atlantic, to the vast edifices of London gasworks; and from these to small domestic artefacts such as wastepaper baskets and plastic bottles. Recently she has been working on paintings and etchings of fruit and vegetables which some observers have likened to body parts but Ruby insists that interpretation is in the eye of the beholder.
