May I have your attention? | Aimee Ruoff

"I look for the small sublime moments within everyday life, focusing on what seems fleeting and ethereal as a reminder of the temporality of life. This process of taking time to seek and translate what I see into painting has become both an act of devotion and a quiet subversion of the pressing speed that defines our cultural moment. “May I have your attention?” is a selection of three large scale drawings of my home in oil pastel on toned Stonehenge paper, completed in Fall 2022. As I consider my surroundings everything around me becomes worthy of contemplation, from the sunlight warming the walls to the pill bottles in the bathroom cupboard. As I rendered these interior scenes in bright hues and expressive marks, the drawing process became a celebration of the many seemingly inconsequential details that make a home."
