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 oil and acrylic 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 Un Amor Joven, meaning “A Young Love,” Ruiz presents a domestic moment. A woman stands nearly full-length, her gaze directed beyond the canvas. The oil and acrylic painting combines realism in the figure with an abstract background marked by vertical lines of paint, suggesting a subtle departure from reality, as if melting away into the unknown. With a gentle touch to her hair, the woman’s introspective demeanour invites viewers into the complexities of young love, where emotions intertwine with the ever-shifting boundaries of perception and reality.
