Ruby T’s work is an experiment in translating fantasy to reality, and she is fueled by anger, desire, and magic. She investigates the stimulating, banal, and often infrastructural as sites of power and exchange: nightclubs, domestic appliances, conferences, and bodies of water. Ruby received her MFA from SAIC in 2016, and was named a 2018 Newcity Breakout Artist. She has shown at Chicago venues including Randy Alexander Gallery, Iceberg Projects, Hyde Park Art Center, and Roman Susan.
