Ruth Bloch is a native Israeli artist born in 1951 on an Israeli kibbutz to an artistic family. Bloch is mostly known for her figurative bronze sculptures featuring themes such as male and female figures, emotional gestures, companionship, and the human experience in general. Bloch’s figures are reminiscent of several East European modernist sculptors such as Alberto Giacometti, Constantin Brancusi and Henry Moore. Her philosophy is a source of inspiration: “For me, what makes art is purity, the fewer stages you have from the inner YOU to the final art piece, the more honest and authentic the art is,” she states. Leaving the kibbutz life for Tel Aviv was an economical and emotional stretch for her, but Bloch followed her passion. She went on to study at the Avny Art Institute in Tel Aviv, and since then, her works have been exhibited at Art Miami, Galerie Vivendi in Paris, and Cafmeyer Gallery in Knokke-Heist, Belgium and of course, all throughout Israel.
