Contrasts and connections of humans and nature, feminine and masculine, modernity and ancient myth all collide and merge to create a fantasical world born anew through the eyes and hands of artist Kathy Ruttenberg. A feminine perspective holds court in these pieces, not so much as a political statement but rather as an actualization of the organic reality of being a woman living in nature. Nature of the Beast is a comprehensive retrospective of the artist's ceramic sculptures, watercolors and drawings from the past six years. The book also features a tour of her amazing estate and studio in upstate New York where pigs, rabbits, chickens and goats live in in a bucolic and artistic surroundings.
