Penny Ruthberg

Penny is an interdisciplinary artist whose work investigates the emotional bond between humans and canines and explores the deep connections between the species. Operating as a kind of emotional medium, Penny’s ceramics capture the essence of her canine subjects and attempt to interpret each dog as an individual with its own internal life. Penny’s art practice explores her interest in the symbolic representation of dogs throughout history and across cultures as well as the strong significance of dogs to humans even beyond the living world.
