Artist Talk: Wednesday, December 19 from 6pm to 8pm
Antonia Ramis Miguel returns to Watergate Gallery continuing her approach to Constructivist art which combines the strength of structured line along with color and abstraction to create a dramatic visual effect that arranges the parts of a subject into a whole. She was born in Spain and has been painting since childhood. When growing up in Spain she studied with Edgardo and Alceu Ribeiro, students of the renowned constructivist Joaquin Torres-Garcia. The influence of her native Spain, particularly the use of saturated color is still visible in her work.
“For this show of my most recent work I have combined a variety of pieces in different mediums including oil on canvas, prints and painted wood sculptures. These works represent my interest in experimentation and utilization of different materials. In the different mediums there is a common point where they all converge; my inner sense guiding my hand.”
