Ruth is an abstract painter dealing with colour as a means of expression, as a structural device and for its symbolic qualities.
Her work is inspired by American artist James Turrell and Mexican architect Luis Barragan, who use pure colour in exterior and interior settings to provide ‘rooms’ or ‘environments’ for contemplation, celebration.
In recent work, she used the symbolism of colour to connect with emotions in a direct, expressive way.
As a creative practitioner over the last 10 years, this interest has informed school and community projects, and art commissions (including murals, sculpture installations and colour workshops) to engage the viewer and trigger feelings and moods using the purity and simplicity of colour.
Ruth is an active member of artists co-operative Northlight Studios, and regularly exhibits her work.
