Sofía Ruiz explores human experience in her paintings, offering a unique perspective on themes of otherness, duality, and loss of identity. Drawing from poignant experiences, she navigates memory and family connections, infusing her work with resilience.

Raised amidst her mother’s amnesia and grandmother’s Alzheimer’s, Ruiz’s childhood was marked by disconnection and alienation within her family. This depersonalisation painting is an example of how this sense of isolation permeates her art, which typically features imperfect family units as metaphors for the human condition.

Central to Ruiz’s work are haunting portraits of children suspended in dreamlike states, surrounded by abstract forms hinting at emotional landscapes. These narratives evoke nostalgia, prompting viewers to explore their own experiences.

In this depersonalisation painting, Ruiz portrays a young girl as half-human, half-mouse, either wearing a costume or morphing into an ambiguous identity from the depths of her imagination. While the scene appears childlike and playful at first, the title references the psychological phenomenon of depersonalisation, wherein individuals perceive themselves as detached from their own reality, viewing themselves from an external perspective. Here, the lines between reality and fiction blur, inviting viewers to ponder the complexities of self-expression and the fluidity of identity.
