Artist Ruth Freeman

Ruth Freeman

Newburgh, NY, USA


American, b. 1969   —   Ruth Freeman’s paintings are created by sandwiching both physical and digital drawing layers. Freeman utilizes the same obsessive process of perfection and detail that parallels the digital functions we use on a daily basis. By emulating the computer through physical gesture, time simulation, and application of bright colors similar to backlit screens she places herself in a strategic position to differentiate between virtual and real. In doing so, her paintings create an intended awkwardness- a digital regurgitation. The allusion of perfection becomes an important element in the work. Ruth is a Newburgh based artist whose work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2016 and had her first solo show at Beers London that same year. She has been involved in curatorial and exhibition design in both the US and Japan and her paintings have been featured in several exhibitions in New York, including select group shows at Thierry Goldberg Gallery, E.Tay Gallery, and Mountain Gallery in Brooklyn. In 2018 her paintings were exhibited at both PULSE Miami and Seattle Art Fair and her work has been published in New American Paintings, ARTMAZE magazine, and The Uprise Art Journal.
