Ruth Armer



Ink and gouache on paper
20 x 23 in. (50.8 x 58.42 cm)
Gift of the Marie Eccles Caine Foundation

Armer’s work encompasses both representational and abstract styles. Though she usually worked with paint, Armer was also a printmaker and experimented with lithography. Her earlier work includes depictions of deserts, large sequoia trees, and the San Francisco lifestyle. Later, Armer’s return to CSFA as a teacher inspired her to experiment with abstraction until she was exclusively creating non-representational artwork. Armer was inspired by classical music, and sought to recreate the sounds and emotions of music with line and color. Her work has been described as a “visual diary” that captures the phases of her life and expresses her feelings about personal, political, and world events.
