PRAISE FOR A NOT SO STILL LIFE
Close

SIFF
Seattle artist, Ginny Ruffner, can’t be summed up in one word, but the most commonly used term is “inspiring”. This conscious cliché is in keeping with Ruffner’s own rejection of irony, pretension, and the high and lowbrow dichotomy. Choosing lamp working as her initial artistic medium, Ruffner revolutionized popular and critical opinions about this formally “kitsch” platform for her unique and globally acclaimed art form. Adding to Ruffner’s extraordinary story is her astounding recovery from a near-fatal car accident in 1991. As an established artist at the age of 39, she was hit by an uninsured teenage driver, leaving her in a coma for five weeks and confined to a hospital for five months. Doctors were convinced that she would never walk or talk again, but true to her indomitable spirit, Ginny Ruffner transformed a potentially tragic accident into a career of even more imaginative creations. From pop-up books, to room-sized installation pieces, to public works, Ruffner’s art has blossomed and continues to expand. Ginny Ruffner: A Not So Still Life marks ShadowCatcher Entertainment’s first feature-length documentary, and one sure to challenge you to see the world from a new and unexpected perspective.
