Ruth Mulvie is a contemporary fine artist, known for her use of brilliant, bold colour palettes and distinctive, hand-painted aesthetic. Her work is reminiscent of early Hockney: glamorous women in 1950s bikinis lounge around swimming pools, palm trees speckle the horizon, while the sky holds the rich intensity of LA heat. 'Garden of Earthly Delights' depicts a paradisal scene: under a twilight sky, lithe women bathe in jungle rivers, surrounded by grazing elephants and exotic foliage. Mulvie beautifully captures the glistening surface of the water, using a carefully wrought colour palette and an incredible sensitivity to light, shade, and texture. All combined, 'Garden of Earthly Delights' powerfully simulates a mood: the print transports us to the glorious vista for a truly immersive experience.
