Ram Brisueño uses a variety of mediums, materials, and objects to create narratives that relate to personal identity and social perceptions with an emphasis on highlighting textures, color, and form. His work brings together, with attention to both surface and concealed images, meaning revealed through intuitive responses allowing a compositional unity that creates themes of myth making and personal identity. An artist he admires, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, put it simply “Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea, and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art.” Ram’s mixed media works have an aesthetic that is a surreal perspective between material and myth at points of transformation that draw inward.
A Baltimore based, self-taught artist with a degree in English from the University of Maryland, Ram has lived in New York and Baltimore, showing his work in a number of galleries, venues, and private collections.
