Vibrant, abstract paintings in acrylic on canvas. I work very spontaneously, regularly changing my palette and experimenting with different processes. I use acrylic paint and sometimes mixed media to create a rich surface texture with many layers, using pattern and contrast to add depth and to lead the eye across the canvas. Colour is paramount, with many different techniques contributing to my creative process.
Ru’s Nudes, known as @badgrl.ruru on social media sites, is a campaign to promote the realistic, honest and destigmatised representation of womxn’s bodies in art form, to reflect the forms of art they truly are. It began as a body positivity and empowerment movement which has grown and developed into an angry fight against the impermissibility of female sexuality and the policing of womxn’s bodies. This was sparked by both the policing of my artwork by instagram and the overwhelmingly positive response to my pieces of art. I drew a link between the reaction to the content I was creating and the current political context and contemporary debates such as around womxn’s rights, transgender rights and abortion law. Clearly, this is a conversation that needs to be had.

Residing as a maker and thinker in Bristol, UK, Lola Evelyn Ives utilizes creative arts as a way to explore the world around her, to find a common ground to present the ideas which she forms to others. Art is a powerful language that she is continuously learning to communicate with. To do so, Lola works with the following disciplines; public art installation, creative writing, collage, drawing, performance, and mixed media textiles sculpture. Lola’s current practice is focused conceptually on exploring the transformation of the Earth and humanity through a variety of projects. Lola’s intention is to create visual and poetic tools that encourage the viewer or participant to think deeply about the current shift in consciousness taking place. Aiming to harness the power of thought, imagination, and manifestation to inspire and create personal, collective, and planetary transformation.
