This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Carmen Ruiz Davila (1975-)

Born in 1975 in Barcelona, Spain, she lives in New York and received a BA, Art History and Latin American History, 1997 from Tulane University, New Orleans and a MFA degree in sculpture, 2002 from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.

A sculptor and installation artist, her projects often draw connections between various cultures and time periods, establishing parallel worlds.

"My work combines models of desire, debasement, and culturally mediated eroticism. I am concerned with the systems in which cultures are filtered and then used within society and its economy. The work is fabricated from layers of truths, fictions, and amalgams of associations held within public and private imagination. I use historical accounts that are blended and distorted, becoming fabrication, in order to construct parallels within contemporary conditions. The narratives are transformed into fantasy where history becomes rumor and culture becomes commerce." — Carmen Ruiz-Davila

Her work has been shown nationally in Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, New Orleans and in Cleveland, where she had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA, Cleveland) through the Wendy L. Moore Emerging Artist Series. She has been an Artist-in Residence in the Glass Department of the Cleveland Institute of Art and an Emerging-Artist-in-Residence at the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle. She won a full fellowship to the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2005.
