Ruth's still life works are not about the faithful representation of the observed, but a visual portrayal of an underlying geometry sensed in her tabletop orchestrations and translated in paint. Time is required in both the making of her work and the appreciation of these paintings. Subtle color transitions, edges both veiled and crisp, and the breathing shapes in between, quietly unfold a moving space of push and pull that lingers in the memory.One experiences the pleasure of seeing and the mystery of the everyday,when time is taken to thoughtfully consider these pieces.

American Artist Magazine featured Ruth in an article on the Zeuxis group, by Michael Gormley (February 2011).  The Zeuxis association, founded by Phyllis Floyd in 1994, takes its name from the legendary Greek tale of a painting competition between Zeuxis and Parrhasius.
