Troy Ruffels is an artist and curator and lives and works on the North West Coast of Tasmania.
Troy Ruffels’ practice engages print and digital media in an exploration of the poetic potential of urban environments. His work investigates ways of communicating the insights and relationships gained through environmental interaction, and the visual language that evolves through the process of translating this experience into imagery. Ruffels’ specific area of interest is the 2-D image, for its capacity to explore the poetic discourses between the environments we inhabit as a predominantly urban species and our role as active participants in that environment. His practice crosses disciplines and media, but engages digital media as a platform for convergence.
In 2000 Troy Ruffels was awarded an Anne and Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship, and in 2003-4 was selected for the Rimbun Dahan Malaysia Residency.
Troy Ruffels was born in Devonport, Tasmania in 1972. He is a graduate of the Tasmanian School of Art, University of Tasmania, and The Glasgow School of Art, University of Glasgow.
