"In weaving seemingly disparate elements together in my sculpture, I have worked to develop a language of those long-stretch connections, this gestalt of the absurd." Ginny Ruffner

Ginny Ruffner's sculptures take the viewer on a bizarre and fantastical journey through her stories. In A Girl's Guide to Fashion Evolution, Ruffner explores what it means to be female. The ribbons, jewelry, and lace seem frivolous when placed next to objects that evoke adventure and excitement, such as a pyramid, campfire, or squid.
