Joe Ruck bio picture

 

Joe Ruck

I'm grateful to be able to paint and sculpt and have always found satisfaction in both.

I grew up with a mother who wove beautiful wall hangings, a father who sculpted in metal and friends who encouraged art experimentation. Enjoyment for me comes from exploring many different mediums and subject matter. Currently I am painting with a brayer (roller) and am amazed with the versatility of this tool. From broad blocks of color to rhythmic sweeping lines the brayer allows for a wonderful spontaneity. People, animals and landscapes are favorite subjects of mine.

Bringing discarded weathered oak pallets and rusted steel to life in animal form is what intrigues me lately. These sculptures represent battle scarred soldiers of life who have suffered greatly but still possess their pride, courage and determination to carry on. Their portraits are then boldly painted to convey their colorful heritage.

Joe Ruck is also a teacher at our Joan of Art Professional Art Instruction workshops.
