Ruth Mulvie trained at Glasgow School of Art and studied painting. Colour is at the centre of all of Ruth's work. She explores the endless potential colour has to offer by mixing and combining colours in a surprising way.
"The imagery I pick varies depending on what I feel like painting, but it all fits into several broad themes of pleasure. It started when I was at art school and made trips to Blackpool to photograph rollercoasters. I used strange filters and processing techniques to help me heighten the colours. I remember driving down to Blackpool from Glasgow and sleeping in the car on the promenade so I could be out first thing to capture the feel of the place with my camera. I fell in love with the Tower Ballroom and I just love all things seaside. It holds tremendous romance for me."
