This auction is raising proceeds for St Wilfrid's Hospice Eastbourne
Ruth Philo’s paintings explore abstraction through colour, light and surface; work combines inner and outer worlds, with conscious and unconscious elements. Sometimes emerging from experiences of place and walking, the paintings convey a sensory experience whilst also being concerned with the materiality of paint and process. The scale is often intimate, working 'face to face' with the viewer and there is a sense of touch rather than gesture.
Ruth regularly exhibits in the UK and abroad, working from a studio in Sudbury, Suffolk. She is a member of Contemporary British Painting and also curated shows including Lines for Agnes (2015). She has had work selected for the Jerwood Drawing Prize and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and has work in collections in the UK, Ireland, USA, Switzerland and China. Ruth has an MA in Fine Art, Norwich University of the Arts, a BA in History of Art, University of Warwick and is represented by Gallery Attache on Artsy, Rise Art, Cobbold and Judd Fine Art.
