Technique

For the past 15 years Ruth Horam has been working at the Jerusalem Print Workshop on multimedia paper art techniques, based on screen printing. Horam incorporates various techniques in her work: freehand or photocopied screen prints, brush touches and more. Most of these techniques she developed and perfected throughout her career.

Horam often uses paper cuttings, leaves and twigs, fabric tears, nature and urban landscape photographs, and combines them with techniques such as drawing and screens to create various effects, such as transparency, depth and a unique color scale.

Ruth Horam's work incorporates the different cultural impacts she absorbed while living in various countries. Her own unique signature can be felt and experienced throughout her creation, which today is mostly inspired by the city of Jerusalem and the landscapes of Israel.
