Desiree Ruiz is a Puerto Rican born and raised, self-taught figurative and quartz artist. Her work seeks to shape what has always fascinated her; the hidden. She depicts dream-like scenes embraced by an ethereal, romanticized dark ambiance fueled by the fear yet fascination towards the unknown. She explores the beauty and mysticism of quartz as the most magical and alluring object created by earth along with the figurative presence of women as the most divine figure ever seen. Ruiz plays with themes of existentialism as she draws inspiration from the ideologies and principles of esotericism and the occult sciences, which seek to discover and understand hidden knowledge and existential mysteries through various forms of divination. Each piece challenges the viewer to wonder about things we cannot grasp; the inexplicable, what still has no answer or form to the human mind and what has remained hidden and secret throughout our history when we talk about existence, reality, and the infinite possibilities beyond the material experience. Also a poet, Desiree Ruiz published a Spanish poetry book back in 2018 titled "El Hechizo de la Amapola", which is filled with illustrations made by her own hand.
