Ruth Philo

Ruth's paintings are concerned with colour, light and surface and their power to evoke feeling and memory.  Her work is not an explanation or depiction of the world although it often begins from abstract qualities found there.  The paintings are rather distillations of sensation and feeling, experiences of being in the world. Through a dialogue with the painting process, they become a record with their histories revealed in their surfaces.
