Ruth Taylor: Solitude is Bliss

18 June to 23 July 2022

Ruth Taylor: Solitude is Bliss

This exhibition entitled, "Solitude is Bliss" is a collection of Ruth Taylor's recent sea, beach and landscapes drawn from memories. With a milky palette of greys, greens and lilacs, they have a dreamy quality. Empty of people, these are places to be alone in where you can enjoy the solitude, walking in the countryside or gazing out to sea, happy in your own company.

Ruth Taylor trained as a textile designer at West Surrey College of Art and Design in the 80s and after many years working with fabric in many forms she discovered a love of oil painting which has become her main form of artistic expression. The influence of her work with textiles is evident in her work, her love of colour, texture and pattern is as much an inspiration as the English countryside. Ruth loads the surface with paint, moving it around with brushes, combs and even her hands looking to capture a particular light or the effect of the weather and seasons on the land.

Ruth Taylor

Ruth Taylor trained as a textile designer at West Surrey College of Art and Design in the early 80s and after many years working with fabric in many forms she discovered a love of oil painting which has become her main form of artistic expression. The influence of her work with textiles is evident in her work, her love of colour, texture and pattern is as much an inspiration as the English countryside. Ruth loads the surface with paint, moving it around with brushes, combs and even her hands looking to capture a particular light or the effect of the weather and seasons on the land.

Ruth's landscapes explore the volume of the colours: the marks are exaggerated and the views are mystical. Beneath the volume and marks, there is the framework of the English landscape; whether it is a Sussex marsh, a deserted beach or the South Downs of her childhood. As Ruth says: I paint the images of this land that have imprinted themselves in my mind over the years. Ruth lives in Hindhead, Surrey.
