From my studio I recite the
poetry of nature—sounds of the ocean, smells in the air, dappled light on the water, colors warmed by the sun— painting arrangements of tones and shapes that speak of emotions, beauty, and peace.
Inspiration for my style came from an unlikely conspiracy between nature and technology when I accidentally fumbled my camera into the water while capturing a panorama. I was disheartened, but the images on my card were wonderfully broken and distorted, showing me the landscape from a different perspective that deeply resonated with me as an artist and storyteller. Over the years, I have honed and further developed this new way of seeing.
Studying the harmony of colors and light, I layer acrylic paint onto canvas or wood panel, articulating the feelings and mood transmitted by a scene. Through this vision, I share my artistic journey and love of nature with the world.
Alma Ramírez is a contemporary abstract artist, born in Mexico and graduated from Instituto de Bellas Artes in Chihuahua, Mexico in 2008 with a BA in Fine Arts. She is currently living and working in St Augustine, Florida. She developed her latest body of work when she moved to Florida in 2014, inspired by water and the colors in the atmosphere, as well as an accidental image that was pixelated or "broken" which lead her to the realization that she could transform something broken into something new. Her process consists of layers of paint studying harmony in colors, composition, and light. Her inspiration comes mainly from nature; water is her favorite element of study.
