The art of Ruth Kumpernatz.
Born in 1947 in Arnsberg, Germany. I always wanted to become a painter. My parents and teachers were convinced about my talents when I started to paint blue birds at the age of 8 years.
In 2007 I got in touch with digital photography and started to edit photos. As I had to cope with a serious disease I decided not to submit the usual photographic rules and simply make pictures my way. My favorite photographers are Lee Miller, Man Ray, Lillian Bassman, Paul Himmel, Annie Leibovitz ... and others
Motto: It's all a question of viewing and ... sometimes it must be different.
Ruth is a great person with so much courage and strength.
She breathes in pictures
and has found, what most artists are looking for:
an own special language to show her world - inside - out.
Her pictures are full of emotions - even the geometrical ones.
I admire her for the strong use of colour and forms....
she's found a unique way to work on photography.
And by the way I think she's a really wonderful person.
Maybe you'll like Ruth and her photoGraphic world as much as I do.
