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 on wood panel 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.

Ruiz’s oil on wood panel painting “Conviction” is an enigmatic portrayal of a young girl. Peering through her glasses, she gazes serenely beyond the canvas, her expression poised with an air of quiet contemplation. Above her shoulders, the skeletons of deer ascend, and balanced precariously on her head, a delicate teacup teeters, its contents spilling into her hair. Muted tones suffuse the canvas, enhancing the ethereal quality of the scene, while delicate brushstrokes meticulously highlight select details. The viewer is invited to ponder the delicate balance between strength and vulnerability and resolve, and fragility.
