Ruth E. Fabiano is a contemporary painter and artistic Jill-of-all-trades working from her studio in upstate South Carolina. She works in the mediums of wood, canvas, and sculpture. She has a B.A. in anthropology from Buffalo State College, which gave her the opportunity to travel to unusual places. These landscapes and cultural experiences can be seen in her paintings.
My whole goal is to somehow not just translate a landscape or an animal, but to paint the feelings and memories about a place. People don’t often remember something as a photograph – they remember the movement, music, wind, feeling. I think I’m really starting to hone in on that in my pieces.
While mainly a self-taught artist, she has attended many workshops and classes. She tips her hat to the classical artists, but also contemporaries such as CBjork, Elena Kotliarker, and Sarah Thomas.
