Ruth Fromstein

"I perceive myself as a creative scientist, experimenting with color, tools and techniques, finding personal meaning and discoveries in the process. My mixed media approach to abstract acrylic painting reflects my playful approach to life."

Ruth Fromstein loves it when her work takes the viewer on a personal journey of meaning and discovery. Her contemporary abstract paintings, filled with color and light, allow collectors to be transported into a world of beauty and intrigue.

Color, texture, and dimension are the basis for Fromstein's original acrylic abstract artwork. Each canvas brings meaning that takes the viewer into the painting, where they can make new and unexpected insights. Her paintings are non-representational, are constructed of many layers, and may include texture medium, glazes, washes, graphite, charcoal, found papers, pastels, and metal leaf.

Fromstein has been "creating" her entire life. Her work with various mediums, including jewelry, mosaics, collage, painted furniture, and weaving, to name a few, have contributed to her success as an abstract painter. Fromstein learned new techniques while participating in various workshops in 2016. However, she has learned to manipulate learned processes to create works unique to her creative development.
