Ruth Lamboo (Lisse, 1972) is a Dutch artist whose work revolves around exposing and re-framing foraged and collected natural materials. She tries to look beyond the obvious and create new life forms from organic material.
"I like to explore the cycle of life and decay, I want to stop time by preserving and capturing nature." Through her art she wants to sensitise people for the simple and devine beauty of nature.
Ruth is born and raised on a flower farm in Lisse: the heart of the flower-bulb region of Holland. She has been educated as a painter at the Willem de Kooning Academie in the city of Rotterdam.
