Ruth Schloss

August 31, 2010

Nuremberg, Germany, 1922
“In the course of my work throughout the years, I have tried to express in visual terms
the tension between the desire to paint for its own sake and the need to react
consciously.” – Ruth Schloss

Ruth Schloss´ dark and solemn paintings are a sensitive examination of the lives of the underprivileged and disadvantaged. Schloss moved to Israel at the beginning of WWII and attended the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. She also studied in Paris at the Grande Chaumière Academy. Schloss´ works are highly stylized realism and her palette consists largely of browns and black with some jewel-toned reds and blues strategically place to bring the eye around the picture. She often uses a palette knife creating sharp calligraphic lines. Her prints and serigraphs also convey a sense of a dark, sad world that surrounds us while humanizing her subjects. She currently lives and works in Kfar Shmaryahu, Israel.
