Part of the Bodyscape series, the artwork conveys a sense of stagnation, akin to the disconnection felt in a muted group chat when one is out of sync with the ongoing conversation.

Dominican Republic

Ana Sofía Batlle, a Dominican artist, earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Studio Arts from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2018. Since then, she has embarked on a journey of artistic exploration, relocating multiple times to refine her technique and draw inspiration from diverse environments. In her artwork, Ana Sofía Batlle boldly questions conventional beauty standards, particularly in relation to how Dominican women alter their bodies in the pursuit of these ideals. Her pieces often depict transformative changes that challenge traditional notions of beauty and self-identity. By saturating her work with intricate patterns and vivid colors, she prompts critical inquiries about when such alterations become excessive. Through her adept use of composition, shapes, lines, and colors, she crafts a playful, intuitive, and repetitive style that challenges established beauty norms and perceptions, especially within the context of the human body.
