CARLY RAMOS

Los Angeles

An abstract artist with an exceptional sense of color and design, Carly Ramos creates compositions in a variety of artistic media. A natural draftsperson with an original mark making technique, Ramos is also a gifted painter who uses translucent acrylic paint to create washy gestures of pigment which are related to her drawn marks despite the inherent differences of the application. Ramos begins with a vague notion of what she wishes to manifest visually and then fleshes it in full as her compositional process evolves during the creation of a given piece. Her love of color and the enthusiasm she brings to the raw, physical act of drawing and painting are wonderfully evident throughout her body of work: proof of an artist in love with the joy of artistic creation.
