Ana Sofia Batlle considers her very still and intricate work time-based. She thinks about the concept of time in relation to its constant change and very obvious stillness. Though time is not a subject explored in her work she sees it as extremely relevant both towards her practice, and the analytical thought behind the subjects she interprets. The Dominican artist graduated with a BFA in Studio from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2018 and has moved several times since then, to continue improving her craft and getting inspired by different surroundings. Batlle’s pattern-filled work looks to bridge the gap between figure and landscape painting through composition, shapes, lines, and colors. Her playful, intuitive, and repetitive mark strives at portraying her contradicting feelings of the absence of thought and constant overthinking.
