Gabriel Ramos (b. 1987 in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico) is an internationally recognized artist currently living and working in Tampa Bay, FL. In Una pausa en un apuro at Gallery221@HCC, Ramos’ wire and fabric installations, which is largely inspired by his childhood memories of Puerto Rico, explore concepts of fragility, the ephemeral quality of home, and the potentiality of line and shape. Ramos received his MFA from Cornell University in 2018.
Kenny Jensen (b. 1977), a Florida native who spent much of his childhood outdoors, collects, categorizes, and re-contextualizes found organic objects and phenomena, which in turn serve as inspiration or raw material for sculptures, installations, paintings, photographs, and videos. Jensen, who received his BFA from Carson Newman University in 2000, currently lives and works in St. Petersburg, FL.
