Spontaneity. With no pretense, or explanation, Ruth Palmer paints contemporary abstracts by feeling her way through the process and connecting to the soul of the subject, without concern for distinctions between representation and abstraction. Born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, Palmer now resides in Calgary, Canada. While her primary influence is spiritual, her art is also influenced by the richness of Manet’s impressionist works and what she deems “the colorful play and balance” of Kandinsky’s. Like Kandinsky, for whom spiritual influences counted heavily, there’s a certain intentional separation with Palmer’s art that allows viewers to participate in creating the artwork. The disunion is repaired when the painted form connects to the viewer’s soul. Ruth’s works are extremely popular in print, particularly in the design market and hospitality industry. Her paintings and digital renderings can be enjoyed in many hotels and corporate offices worldwide. Recently Ruth was asked to create a collection for installation on one of Pulmantur’s new cruise ships the “Sovereign”. Her painting “Comfort Zone” also adorns the cover or AOTA Press’s ‘Occupational Therapy Manager” and she has been featured in Cairo’s “ASK Magazine”. Original paintings are in collections throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia and Scandinavia.
