About the Artist

File 83989

Ruth Freeman (b. 1969) is a New York-based painter whose work explores the relationship between chaos and order. Beginning with a detailed digital mockup, Ruth alternates between additive and subtractive layers of paint, mirroring her computer based sketch. Once these initial layers are complete, Ruth allows chance to intervene as she adds impromptu gestural brushwork in reaction and opposition to her previous marks.
