... She is working with visual poetry, and her dreaming art is brilliant at making us wonder and reflect. ...These ... pictures made us, in Art Nordic, reflect upon our choices, and the trail of selection that they paint. A story. A life. We are all placed before the choice as we move forward along the stream of time. It's so easy to get lost in the things that we didn't do, and scared as we can be, we can forget to live if we never decide on anything at all... One thing is certain, Ma Ru's talent for working with visual art is unquestionable. A clash of reality and the clean canvas where everything is undecided and still possible."
