Natalia Ramirez, has been painting and coloring since she was 10 years old. She is cuban. She earned a degree in Art and letters. Majoring in Education. She learned abstract Painting, Pottery and photography. Inspired by nature and the colors of the Cuba island. Natalia has been influenced by the impressionist and abstract artists, Pablo Picaso, Kandinsky and the american abstract. Artist Speech Discover an emotional impulse, essentially positivist, is the constant assumption of an artist, committed to an honest work and if passes, by the lofty path of abstraction, that feeling becomes more complex.
Each step in my artistic projection, urges emotional states, sometimes chaotic, sometimes of complete peace of mind, in order to achieve an intimate-essentialist freedom, expressed through gestural strokes, informal, or spatial and dominate the spontaneous pulse impulsive gesture, sometimes thought, integrated and supported in a palette based primarily on the hot range, where red, orange, yellow, have the primacy, accented with browns, sepia or burnt sienna, designed by its meaning, as holding the energy charge. Red emerges as the very fire of life, oranges and yellows, with their vital energy, the sienna, sepia and browns, as inherent elements of the earth. My issues come and go under a very personal imprint, combining elements of African Americans, eclectic, or sometimes emphasizing symbols marked by some experiential event, such as the image of the ladder.
In most of the compositions there is a tendency toward verticality, made with a deliberate purpose markedly, in defiance of the spatial distribution of light and shadow, and the atmosphere created by the combination of planes and volumes, calculated by a discourse of experimentation mater in the entire creative process, where the fabric or other support acquire a visual meaning, punctuated almost every time by the quick touch or the broken line. Occasionally some ways, they acquire a symmetric projection with geometric elements whim of several where the triangle or inverted pyramid, are central.
I identify with Rothko, poetic research on irregular forms, with indefinite borders, to ensure smooth surfaces, without much interest in achieving balance superfluous, and if effects caused by the texture, or pastiche, provided that support me represents a challenge, because of their format, activating a virtual image, where I’m projecting each plane, from an intimate position. With Jackson Pollock, he joins his sense of informality and the use of Dripping. On those, I concentrate on building and building the composition with the use of different materials such as brush, spatula, or my own hands.
