Humberto Ramirez: Works about form, space, light and color
The paintings allude to the botanical garden as an abstract fantasy. They use the vocabulary and conventions of abstraction but are deeply rooted in an experience of the body and the world. In a way, they are less of a radical denial of the social, as they are a reaffirmation of the desire for a space of creative autonomy. These works are all about form, space, light and color and while pointing to the corporeal world they also seek to transcend it.
