Through the power of art ECO METAL ARTIST Ruta Wilson can move the hearts and minds of people to
conserve for the benefit of all, not only in the ecological sense, but also aesthetically.
While working on site at Sky Dome, now the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ruta Wilson could see the many
heaps of scrap metal piling up throughout the site, some of which may have been destined for landfill.
Realizing the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling, and that beauty and inspiration lay within
the myriad of salvageable, metallic shapes protruding from the piles was the seed of inspiration that
gave rise to her studio, West Rock Art Metal. Ruta Wilson, a sculptor who can imagine an exquisite
art form rising piece by piece out of a junk pile, knows that ECO METAL ART not only reuses discarded
metal, reducing waste, but believes that it also provides an alternative form of art that brings smiles to
faces, and a contented sense of expanded imaginative thinking and perception.
What Ruta Wilson is doing is nothing short of inspiring. Her captivating sculptures are transforming
communities through art and design. As an ECO METAL ARTIST, Ruta breathes life into discarded
junk metal by presenting it in new ways that range from unique to awesome. Her prolific family of
sculptures is essentially a study in progress. As her sculptures gradually take shape from day to day,
Ruta demonstrates an ever expanding evolution of thought and application, and a unique and unlikely
conjoining of diverse, robust parts. She has the ability to recognize lively and often whimsical forms
in otherwise bland, lifeless metal parts that would be overlooked by most. This enables her to create
ECO METAL ART that quickly becomes part of the psyche, evoking satisfaction, sometimes humour and
sometimes pensive interpretation by anyone who becomes intimate with the sculptures. Each sculpture
has its own unique personality and message, exclusive and moving in its own way.
Ruta Wilson's imaginative, reclaimed metal sculptures and other creative designs have been exhibited in
private collectors' homes, gardens, specialty shops, galleries and art exhibitions. Her creations appeal to
all ages and backgrounds, and range from entertaining to sophisticated. Recycled/reused metal art is a
true reflection of the artist's personality and ingenuity. What may be trash to some is reborn for you in
the hands of this dynamic ECO METAL ARTIST.
