I mix colours with emotions to help you celebrate life on Earth

Abstract artist Ruth Dent presents her bold, expressive artworks.

Celebrating nature, humanity and the spirit.

Accepting that we need darkness to see the light.

Abstract Art

Abstract art celebrating nature, the spirit and the sheer joy of being alive here and now on planet earth.  Laying down meaning in the layers of paint, from observations of nature and forays into history, literature, mythology plus my own experiences.

Connecting people, knowledge, beliefs, places and times.  Always representing my feelings with colour and gesture and with the intention of  creating an emotional response.

Uprising (Detail)

'The Day the Sky Shattered and Flew Away' follows on from Breathing Space, rising up from the forest into the sky.

Breathing Space is an installation with a sonic landscape.  Starting as one painting to embrace, envelop and immerse the Spectator, it took on a life of its own.


Prior to 2015 I worked on interpretative projects, creating pieces in response to  Benjamin Britten’s ‘War Requiem’, Virginia Woolf’s first novel, ‘The Voyage Out’, and ‘Choral Evensong’.

Exhibiting in solo and group shows in England and France, my work has been seen in galleries, cathedrals, a theatre, priory and moulin.
