Macy Ruple


I grew up in Lexington, South Carolina. Currently, at Winthrop University, I am a candidate for a B. F. A. in Art with a concentration in general studio with emphases in sculpture and photography. After graduation, I will enter the Camp and Conference Ministry field to eventually work as the Executive Director of a Christian camp. This track will include an internship for a year and seminary four years post-grad.

Artist Statement:

As a sculptor and photographer, I explore different aspects of memory and the passage of time through self-portraits. These portraits rarely reflect parts of my actual body, but instead reflect the self through experiences and memories. The portraits are presented to the viewer in a way that requires them to reflect on the same or similar memories in their own life. In photos of my sculptures, I explore dramatic light and shadow to create interest.
