Gabriela Ruiz, a self-taught artist, grew up in Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley to immigrant parents from Mexico.

Her practice embraces a Do-It-Yourself work ethic familiar to her from youth, one which expresses the vibrancy of Mexican cultural and artistic traditions. She employs everyday materials and blends a diverse range of mediums, using color, sound, and texture to create environments that allow a full immersion of the viewer in the worlds she creates. Her multimedia artistic practice is centered around issues of identity, the body, desire, and self-fashioning.


This season’s exhibitions are sponsored by the Herman & Faye Sarkowsky Charitable Foundation and Yvonne & Steve (in memoriam) Maloney.
