The eternal struggle of the human condition
The struggle between good and evil is a powerful theme found in Rut’s art, and manifests itself in different subjects, including dynamic horses and powerful wrestlers.
Rut sees the human effort to tame the wild horse as a means of capturing the ongoing and universal struggle between the earthly and the spiritual planes.
His wrestling figures, both male and female, move beyond a mere representation of the human form to become an allegory of emotional expression and the quest for a higher meaning in the struggle of contemporary life.
