Ruth Fitton | Oil on Linen Panel | 14 x 11 inches
“I have always been fascinated by the human face, with its unique capacity for character and communication.” Ruth
Ruth is a portrait and figurative painter based in Yorkshire, UK.
Ruth has been painting professionally since 2012. Her paintings range from opulent life-sized pieces, to figures set within landscapes, to delicate miniatures in which she strives to capture maximum truth with minimum information.
Painting from life is the core of her practice. It is balanced by a keen curiosity regarding texture, layers, and edges; she constantly seeks the most imaginative ways to make paint replicate the feel and character of what she sees. Quick, immersive live studies are generally followed by intense periods of studio work.
Ruth’s paintings have garnered attention and praise across the globe. Recent awards include a Purchase Award from the Art Renewal Center (2021) and 1st Place Young Artist award with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (2020). Recent exhibitions include the group show ‘Five and Under’ at Arcadia Contemporary, NYC; and the ARC International Salon live exhibition at Sotheby’s, NYC and MEAM, Barcelona. Ruth’s painting “Things Not Seen” has been selected for the Lunar Codex cultural time-capsule project; in 2022 a copy of the painting will be sent to the Moon.
