Dayana Ruiz is multi-disciplinary, conceptual artist based in Miami, Florida. She received a BFA in sculpture from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 2016.
Her art-making process consist of building upon the simplification of a concept using inexpensive, recognizable and provisional materials; the works are often ephemeral, ready-mades or with little alternation to the original objects helping to express a visual metaphor that connects the concept to the materiality of the work. Playing with the juxtaposition between materials that are widely known and ones that go unnoticed captivates the viewer to question what is being presented in front of them. Challenging traditional methods of art making by breaking away from the common understanding of the conservancy and solidity of art thus introducing art as an ephemeral experience that conveys a universal notion.
