Bette Ridgeway

(American)

 

    

     Bette Ridgeway is best known for her large-scale, luminous poured canvases that push the boundaries of light, color and design. Her youth spent in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York and her extensive global travels have informed her colorful palette. For the past two decades, the high desert light of Santa Fe, NM has fueled Ridgeway’s art practice.

     Her three decades of mentorship by the acclaimed Abstract Expressionist Paul Jenkins set her on her lifetime journey of non-objective painting on large canvas. She explores the interrelation and change of color in various conditions and on a variety of surfaces. Her artistic foundations in line drawing, watercolor, graphic design, and oils gave way to acrylics, which she found to be more versatile for her layering technique. Ridgeway has spent the last 30 years developing her signature technique, called “layering light,” in which she uses many layers of thin, transparent acrylics on linen and canvas to produce a fluidity and viscosity similar to traditional watercolor. Delving further, Ridgeway expanded her work into 3D, joining paint and resin to aluminum and steel with sculptures of minimal towers.

     Ridgeway has gained a well-deserved international following in recent years.  In January 2020, she received the prestigious Leonardo DaVinci Prize in Florence, Italy.  In June of 2019, the 2019 International Artist of the year Award was presented to her in Mantua, Italy.  Other awards include Top 60 Contemporary Masters, Michelangelo Prize, Rome and Sandro Botticelli Prize, Museum of Florence.

     The Mayo Clinic and Federal Reserve Bank are amongst Ridgeway’s many permanent public placements.  Numerous books and publication have featured her work, among them: International Contemporary Masters and 100 Southwest Contemporary Artists.

     She has exhibited globally including 80 plus museums, universities and galleries, including Palais Royale in Paris, Embassy of Madagascar and London Art Biennale.

Jones & Terwilliger Galleries proudly represents Bette Ridgeway in Carmel and Palm Desert, California.
