Fair Director’s Pick for the Week of August 23

Yanin Ruibal



“Yanin Ruibal is a Mexican artist, based in Mexico City, whose paintings confront the “challenges, conflicts, and limitations” of life in the 21st century through surrealist imagery. Drawing inspiration from personal and collective emotions, she uses recurring symbols—animals, celestial bodies, cacti, eyes—to create scenes of contrast, which ultimately bring relief through a balance of tension.”

As Nicole forms her recommendations, she is considering key aspects of an artist’s work that demand special recognition—whether it be a fully articulated style that is unique and arresting, a mastery of technical skill that reveals an uncommon talent, or a strong underpinning of ideas that is fresh and provocative. It is our hope this this series will help you discover an artist whose works you really love.
