When asked about her approach to art, abstract artist Ruth le Cheminant says: “You load your brush, you make your mark, you revel in your colours. Remain fearless and maintain integrity in your purpose.” Ruth has a deep appreciation for the beauty of the Australian landscape and this translates into her work. With confidence in her work and her mark-making, Ruth commands the canvas. She develops the surface through the layers and colours she applies, allowing the layers to reveal the development and exuberance of the work. Some works have a quiet contemplation while others have a delightful vibrancy, but all have her signature careful juxtaposition of colour and form.
