ARTIST PROFILE

 

I use to paint and draw horses with human beings, for me they represent symbols, perfect blends, full with energy produced by the tension and distension of those alive bodies, trying to achieve an equilibrium similar to nature itself, where all the existent elements are all together in varieties, quantities and precise proportions, resulting in unique beings with a variety of vibrations (the three natural kingdoms).

With human pretentiousness I try to dominate the materials transforming them throughout art; magic medium that permits a sublime manifestation revealing in every final artwork intangible but present dimensions.

A search and definition between the abstract and concrete,the positive and negative, the finite and eternal, the subjective and objective, considering their relativity and definitely having the certainty that everything is able and susceptible to transform itself, in the eternal and mythical spiral that life is.

Samuel Ruiz


Samuel Ruiz is interested in fragmentation, shadows and profiles, in order to conjure the idea of totality. He is not inclined on giving the viewer a realistic image, instead he proposes a visual symbol that, in this case, can be a horse or a human figure. In his paintings, we see hoofs of horses that gallop in a prairie or the outline of a colt and its rider on the horizon. He does not limit himself to brushwork, he takes advantage of his experience in graphic arts to introduce diverse techniques, such as patterns, stamps, collages or cut papers to reproduce flowers or branches entangled with decorative lines in order to harmonize with a texture of subtle chromatic connotations.

Samuel's work is based on the human figure, but not from the natural model, he prefers to remodel it to be free at the search.
