Art on Barcelona
Ruth Omlin October/November/December 2023 Reception October 7, 3-6 pm
Born in a small town in Switzerland I always yearned to see the “bigger world”. My early interest in languages and a sense of adventure led me to travel extensively and live in many different countries at a young age (French speaking part of Switzerland, England, South Africa, Spain, India and finally Manhattan,) before moving to Santa Fe.
While my early exposure to art was indirect, being able to visit the great museums and historic places in London, Madrid, Southern India, and Manhattan nurtured my art appreciation. However, I did not trust myself to be good enough until I did a Masters in Art Therapy at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY in midlife, which allowed me to trust and get absorbed in the process.
Living in Santa Fe since 2000 has allowed me to focus and expand on a variety of creative projects, such as Lichtspiele, a technique I developed, mixed media and printmaking. I work loosely without preconceived ideas. As I discover patterns and creatures emerging from the background, I enhance these, bringing them to the surface.
