About

Carlos Ramirez was born in Cuba and currently resides in Santa Fe, NM. Ramirez has been painting for over 30 years. “This body of work relates to nature as I see and experience it daily. Going for a hike in the mountains or simply working in my garden, I find myself swept up by the world around me, losing myself in its majestic beauty. It is that moment, that feeling, that inspired this body of work. My paintings are not an attempt to replicate the places I have been to - but rather an homage to the memory of those moments, capturing their essence in color and movement. This feeling of total immersion; of being suspended in time and space is what brings me to the canvas. On canvas, the resemblance to nature is further echoed in the looseness of the paint application. The use of opaque and translucent layers create varying degrees of solidity and airiness that move the eye both forward and back within the painting. The layering and blending of the paint, mixed with the bold contrasts of tones, mimics the disarray and chaos seen in the natural world. Using twigs dipped in ink for the line drawings further encourages chance and spontaneity, while a sense of structure is created by horizontal and vertical elements. This play on the delicate balance between chaos and order is a central theme that runs deeply through all of my work."
