This exhibition presents Ruth Bloch’s powerful bronze sculptures. Eliminating precise detail and relying on line and form alone, Ruth creates simple, yet poignant figurative bronzes. Whether couples, parents and children, or individual female figures, her creations are an expression of her both her feelings and emotions.

Ruth Bloch was born in Israel in 1951 to artistic parents. Her father was a musician, while her mother worked in ceramics, Ruth’s family lived in a Kibbutz called Alonim, a place where, in her early youth, she was afforded many opportunities to develop her artistic abilities. As a young adult, Ruth attended the Avni Art Institute in Tel Aviv. She furthered her education in the United States where she received a degree in psychology. Currently, Bloch lives and sculpts in Israel. Her work exhibits a great depth of feeling for the human figure, revealing the living unity of both masculine and feminine forces. She has mastered working with bronze, and her elegant human sculptures are viscerally appealing to people of all ages. Her works are exhibited all over the world.

“For me, what makes art is pureness, the fewer stages you have from the inner you to the art, the better.” – Ruth Bloch.
