Ruth Bunnewell graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Norwich School of Art and Design in 2004. She has since exhibited extensively in Norfolk, Suffolk and London. Along with being featured in the Wall Street International in the article Abstracting the Landscape (2015) Ruth’s work was also highlighted as “…putting a contemporary spin on traditional British landscape painting” in the June issue of House and Garden, the same year.
Capturing a mood is central to her technique, inspired by the films of David Lynch, much of the work is underpinned by underlying geometry and subtle abstraction. Working from her own photographs she produces paintings that are studies in form, colour, texture and light, the contrast between the wide open spaces of the landscape, and the tight, dark, density of groups of trees.
