John Ruth

Recent paintings

Date: Sep 7 – Sep 27Space: Small Gallery

John Ruth is primarily a self-taught landscape painter, although his subject matter also includes cityscapes, portraits, domestic interiors and figure studies.

Although John paints in a realist style, his paintings often imbue a sense of intensity and magic into the everyday experience.

His preferred medium is acrylic as he enjoys the versatility that this medium offers, from delicate water colour washes to overlays of stronger pigments.

John works from his home studio in Hawkes Bay where he is happy to be visited by prior appointment.

Further examples of John’s style and versatility as well as current works for sale can be viewed on his website: www.johnruth.com

Join John to celebrate the opening of his exhibition on Friday 7 September, 5-7pm, all welcome!
