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 skeleton costume 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 Mortrait, Sofia Ruiz presents a skeleton costume painting as a compelling study of mortality and identity. Against a muted, abstract backdrop, a man dressed in a skeleton costume holds a cigarette in his hands, poised as if about to take a puff. His gaze, steady and contemplative, pierces through the canvas.

Ruiz prompts viewers to confront the transient nature of life, while pondering the interplay between mortality and the human experience.
