Documented here is Los Angeles-based artist Ruby Osorio's creation A Story of a Girl (Who Awakes Far, Far Away)--an enchanting magical environment based on her unique drawings and works on paper. This series of gouache paintings incorporates thread and ink and presents this young artist's exploration into female identity and more tellingly, the construction of that identity through what is becoming a hallmark of her hand--whimsy with a punch. In this new series of painterly drawings, Osorio pushes the range of her work in scale, medium and content; thus transforming the gallery into a delicate room that presents a “feminine aesthetic” through the use of cartoon-like drawings of women, girls, animals, objects and natural landscapes (some directly on the wall) that grow from tiny thumbnail sketches to large mural-sized narratives. The images within and the design of this book and the limited edition reference the delicacy and preciousness of Osorio's hand and concepts.
