Artist in Residence

As a space to celebrate beauty in all its unique forms, Philosophy MD is pleased to present our Artist in Residence program. On a rotating basis, we'll spotlight a talented local artist, whose selected works will be showcased throughout the clinic and available for purchase. We're delighted to take this opportunity to inspire our visitors while supporting the local arts community.

Our Current Muse:

Rubeena Ratcliffe

Rubeena Ratcliffe creates narrative paintings that often focus on the solitary female protagonist. In these intimate spacial portraits, she captures the figure immersed in various mundane pursuits and moments of deep reflection, between themes of tedious/monotonous versus spiritual/imaginative. ​

Ratcliffe’s paintings uncover hidden narratives and conjure dreamlike spaces, often within the interior domestic sphere. With a background in Architecture, she paints with an acute awareness from the female gaze, employing deeply colourful hues and nuanced details with her use of hatch work.

Ratcliffe received her Masters of Architecture from Dalhousie University and has studied and worked in Canada, United States, India and the Netherlands. She lives and works in Vancouver with her husband and three young children.
