Angie Rucker is a conceptual photographer living in Westerville, Ohio. She received her BA from Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts and has participated in juried and group exhibitions at institutions including The Cato Institute, The Southeast Center for Photography, The Photoplace Gallery, The Amblewood Gallery, ASmith Gallery, The Riffe Gallery, and The Academy of Fine Arts. Some of her recognitions include Juror's Choice Award, OOVAR Juried Art Show at the Carnegie Gallery, Columbus, OH, Portfolio Competition Semi Finalist at the SoHo Photo Gallery in NYC, Director’s Award for the Juried Exhibit “Flight” at the Photoplace Gallery and 1st Place at Saville Gallery’s National Juried Photographic Exhibition.
Rucker’s series of narrative portraits often represent and fictionalize personal situations based on her own experiences or those around her. In her series, Hic Sunt Dracones, the domestic landscape serves as a backdrop, using cinematic drama and illustrative aesthetics along themes of intimacy, relationships and loss.
In her series Blue and Gray, Rucker attempts to reclaim and infuse substance to those that were not only relevant to others but to the character of our nation.
“In the end, all of my work is an attempt to create a physical representation of human character."
