Ruth borum-loveland

Norman, Oklahoma

Ruth Borum-Loveland is a painter who creates radial compositions inspired by the relationship shared between small parts and the whole they comprise. 

Using acrylic paint, pen drawings, layering and sanding techniques, gold leaf, photocopy manipulation of original drawings, and acrylic transfers on wood and canvas, Borum-Loveland’s radials reflect her interest in mycology, nature, manifestation, and human relationships and her love for color and the alchemy of painting. Her process is inherently meditative in its repetition of minute details and this act draws upon notions of community, the life cycle, the universe, and our place within it.

Borum-Loveland earned her BFA from the University of Oklahoma and she has exhibited work throughout the United states.
