ORIGINAL OIL PAINTINGS

Inspired by her love of Victoriana, architecture and postcards from the 60s and 70s featuring motels, beaches and quirky destinations, Ruth is honing her artistic narrative with a quiet British boldness.

 

Curating a design of life tailored on human pleasure, where make-belief and imagination merge into each other is where Ruth Mulvie’s visions come alive.

 

"THE OBJECTS

OR ANIMALS

ARE NOT JUST RANDOM, THEY HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY CHOSEN

TO FIT WITH MY AESTHETIC AND THE FEEL

I WANT TO CREATE"

With her child-like, unadulterated sense of fun and pleasure in expressing her craft, Ruth’s sexy-strange, yet enchanting work is a bold statement of imagery, design and colour.

 

Ruth uses high quality pigment oils on canvas where possible and her work features in private collections around the world.

Ruth Mulvie is a contemporary fine artist, known for her vivid palette and for the delightfully unexpected detail in her paintings. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art and over the years comparisons have been made with Hockney.

 

She cherishes that visceral connection that Kodachrome™ gives us with our past. That single moment frozen in time that one can look at forever.  Old photographs are her initial inspiration for each new piece; a digital springboard atop which she dives into her latest delicious fantasy landscape.

Mulvie’s colour choices yell and fizz. They quicken the heartbeat. Sherbet yellow next to candy pink or lime green besides turquoise, they all elevate the mood.

 

'Mulvie’s colour choices yell and fizz.

They quicken the heartbeat.

Sherbet yellow next to candy pink or lime green besides turquoise, they all elevate the mood.'

In her paintings we are invited to join the most wonderful party or shared experience. Mulvie’s realms surprise and delight. Hers are playful, glamorous worlds with pure glee for oxygen. And in each we are granted a day in happy valley.

At the heart of Mulvie’s pieces is the palpable joyfulness in her response to colour.  She is at her happiest when mixing and combining paint, waiting for the thrill of the perfect shade. For her, colour is emotion, colour is memory, colour is her favourite place to be. And we are all invited. There’s no place like it.
