Working with cold wax's ability to hold objects, Ruth Armitage incorporates found objects in her paintings; these textures and patterns emerge from and recede into the swathes of color. Her abstracts are detailed environments, packed with marks and forms, shifts in scale and movement; intense primary colors become permeable hazes, layers are worn away and incised to reveal artifacts and further layers.
Oil and cold wax painting. 12 x 12 inches. $295.
