Rüthi's still life paintings combine the quiet subtleties of Morandi with a curious humour. On a shelf, reproductions of artworks are set beside everyday objects – matchboxes, nail polish and figurines. The canonical artworks depicted by Rüthi are taken into the everyday, functioning as humble components of a domestic environment. Connections are read into the delicately painted, rather intimate objects. Both naďve and theoretical, the paintings have an immediate pleasure and a considered intelligence.

A Swiss artist who lives and works in London, Rüthi has shown in England, Germany, Switzerland and America. Receiving both critical and commercial success, he has exhibited alongside artist such as Damian Hirst, Gilbert and George and Hanne Darboven. His work is held in numerous public and private collections.
