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 fantastical Cycles 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 her fantastical Cycles painting, Ruiz depicts a surreal portrayal of two young girls in a fantastical tableau. Dressed in enigmatic costumes, they inhabit a dreamscape of vibrant abstraction. Against this kaleidoscopic backdrop, Ruiz renders their faces with striking realism, lending a sense of tangible presence to their ethereal forms. Rainbow-striped threads fall vertically down the canvas, creating a tactile texture that blurs the boundary between reality and imagination, as if Ruiz’s world is breaking free from the confines of the canvas.
