101 E Franklin St, Mechanicsville, VA 23111

HOME a series of acrylic on canvas paintings by native New York City artist, Helene Ruiz; curator, visual artist and founder of the Urban Individualists artists collective who now resides in Mechanicsville VA. This series of works are just a juxtaposed dreamlike portrayal of the paintings I have done from my memories and my imagination of growing up in NYC. I hope it can help to show the other side of what has always been a stereotypical portrayal of a dangerous and harsh city, and although that also is a reality, the memories of this side of life in NYC are also a reality. Everything has its Yin and Yang. Ahhhh… NYC, Home… you remain in my being.
