Ruth Jeyavareen‘s work is based on traditional material practices. Drawing from her experience as part of the South Asian diaspora, she uses textiles to examine a shared history of alienation and dissociation. In her felted soft sculptures and installations, the boundary between human, animal, and flora dissolves to tell a story of isolation, migration, and evolution.

Using paper as her preferred material, Nia combines the complexities of different textures, cuttings and clippings to illuminate figures, moods and stories. Through her artistry, Nia combines her passion for style and her chosen medium to inspire self-love and inventiveness in individuals, with a principal focus on the African and Black diaspora.
