Koh's nature-inspired oil paintings on canvas -- all painted with a palette knife--are full of emotion and expression.
Tennessee artist Ruth Koh was born in Logan, WV located in the southwest corner of the state. It is an area known for steep, heavily forested hillsides, Koh's Woods Series is a testament to her reaction to the primordial essence that flows through these mountains.
Her paintings are in private collections in the United States and Canada.
Koh is represented by fine art galleries and is a member two national organizations-- American Women Artists and Oil Painters of America. Her paintings have sold at invitational exhibits at the Knoxville Museum of Art and numerous other juried shows and exhibitions.
I paint real and imagined scenes, or a combination of the two. I am fascinated with fleeting moments and feelings. My abstract landscapes take my usual non-literal approach a few steps further.
