About The Work


by Ruth Chase In The Eye of The Beholder Charcoal on Paper 12x12 inches 2014

Becoming A Better Sinner series is about the structures we put in place to try to make us feel right
or belong that result in a residue of guilt from self-betrayal.  It’s about confronting dogma that
doesn’t fit and owning your authentic self.  As a young girl I mostly listened to my own voice
over anyone else’s.  I still felt guilty, but did it anyway.  I remember the look on my mother’s
face when I came home with fuchsia hair.  She said to me,  “Where’s my little girl?”  Yep, I felt
like a sinner. So these days, I’m working on embracing the “Sinner” voice.  I’m playing with the
meaning of the word and finding out what it means to me, a word with so much charge and
button-pushing in our world. I find that what others may call a sin isn’t really what I would
call a sin.  However I invite you to find your own meaning in the work.

Who knows, you may just want to become a better sinner as well.
