Sally Ruddy

American Art Collector - - Award Winner -

Al­ways touch­ing on the won­der of na­ture, Sally Ruddy’s di­rect ob­ser­va­tions of her sur­round­ings cap­ture im­pres­sion­able mo­ments, im­mor­tal­iz­ing each mem­ory on her can­vases. Beau­ti­fully in­te­grat­ing her emo­tional re­sponses and per­sonal nar­ra­tives to that of her view­ers, Ruddy’s sig­na­ture soft brush­strokes and airy, ef­fort­less blend­ing of col­ors con­trib­ute to an homage to her sur­round­ings. Ruddy ex­plains, “All of these works record scenes of my per­sonal en­vi­ron­ment and cel­e­brate the essence of life.” Ask­ing her­self what it is that di­rectly speaks to her artis­tic vi­sion al­lows her paint­ings to grad­u­ally and spon­ta­neously be­gin to bloom.

By omit­ting fine de­tails in the scenery, Ruddy cre­ates a set­ting that is oth­er­worldly, trans­port­ing her view­ers into her in­ti­mate mem­o­ries of fam­ily and self. Dream­like and mov­ingly sen­ti­men­tal, Ruddy’s paint­ings blos­som with color and in­trin­sic emo­tion. She cre­ates an ex­pres­sive, ex­pan­sive body of work that en­cap­su­lates the lit­tle joys and trea­sures of life, re­flect­ing the beauty within.

Her work, done in a va­ri­ety of sub­ject mat­ters, vis­ually de­tails her fam­ily’s al­mond farm, a neigh­bor­hood home and gleamed trea­sures. Ruddy un­cov­ers small mo­ments of joy and beauty by seek­ing out the un­ex­pected and over­looked.

Ruddy’s nat­u­ral scenes demon­strate her deep love of her sub­jects and the world around her. Her paint­ings have been fea­tured across the United States and through­out Europe. Her pieces are held in pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions through­out the world in­clud­ing the

Kaiser Per­ma­nente Hos­pi­tal, Cal­i­for­nia State Uni­ver­sity Stanis­laus, the Mu­seum of New Mex­ico, and the Oak­land Mu­seum De­part­ment of His­tory.
