“The world explodes with color, and the color I see in nature is what I attempt to capture on canvas.  With the vibrancy and fluidity of oil paints, I try to translate onto canvas the essence of the incredible richness I see and feel around me.

For me, painting is like solving a puzzle — and finding the right spot to place my brush, choosing the exact color, intensity and value of pigments.  To move a color-laden brush on a blank canvas and redefine my inner vision is an exhilarating, challenging and exhausting experience.  I rearrange the pieces until the puzzle is complete.  What others refer to as “still life,” I call “living life.”  My paintings, which I call “interpretive realism,” help me explain my existence and my passion.  They put my world in order.

An art critic for the Boston Globe, reviewing my work, said, “Bold, realistically rendered paintings of amaryllis and cyclamen by New York artist Ruth Epstein look real enough to inhale.”  That kind of comment is reassuring, because I want my viewers to feel an urge to touch the canvas, experience the scent of my floral images and sense the wind blowing through the leaves.”
