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 introspection 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 introspection painting, Ruiz invites viewers into a world of contemplation. Against a backdrop of muted, abstract greys, two women are depicted with striking realism, their gaze fixed out of the canvas. Set in the centre of their eyes, Ruiz has sewn small balls of thread deep into their pupils, creating tactile texture that beckons the viewer to peer deeper into their souls.
