Ruth Bloch was born in Israel in 1951. The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Ruth grew up in a kibbutz where she was inspired by the ideas of a collective community being responsible for building the young nation. Her mother, an artist and her father a musician instilled in her an artistic outlook on life early on. She lost her mother when was nine years old.
Ruth attended the Avni Art Insitute in Tel Aviv, wowing professors with her skill and personal style in sculpture. Considered to be an abstract reprise of Brancusi, Bloch’s sculptures are gifted with humane sway and animation. She believes that “art is not a con game of fashionable political platitude, or textual criticism designed to beguile the academic and boggle the viewer.” In other words, her art is happily detached from the intellectual which she believes has become the “arthritis of art.”
Ruth has gained notoriety as an internationally successful artist exhibiting in America, France, England and in Israel at Expressions Gallery. Her work can be found at ZK Gallery at Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary 2018, ZK Gallery at CONTEXT Art Miami 2018, ZK Gallery at Art New York 201
