Ruiz breaks with geometric order and embraces the natural world in her vividly hued plexiglas pools that call to mind magical aquatic bodies. When placed on the wall, these neon-rimmed Wells become wormholes or portals to other dimensions of time and place. Their emitted light throws color across the walls of the room, bathing faces, bodies and space. The appearance of light takes on a material presence, thus demanding not only a visual but also physical response. Equally inviting as it is enveloping, the neon draws the viewer in to know what is beyond the work’s reflective visage.
