Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This work is from Ramsay's latest series titled Messengers and refers to John Constable "Messenger Clouds", today known as scud or stratus fractus clouds, those that move at faster speeds under rain clouds.

Constable would set up at the same time each day, with premixed vials of paint to capture the sky and its clouds. He referred to this practice as “skying.”

This series is not about clouds though, yet is something of clouds, as Ramsay does a lot of skying herself. Also, she watches the clouds in the sky over the East River daily, all times of day and night, all seasons.

Interference paints subtly shift the colors the viewer sees, making the artwork dynamic; reminding us life is always changing. Counter to what the viewer sees, these pigments are colorless; it is their ability to bend light that causes a viewer to perceive a color that’s not really there.

Artist Profile

Born: 1957

Hometown: New York

Based in: New York City

Debra Ramsay is an American abstract artist who creates acrylic paintings, drawings and installations that explore the conceptual interplay between color, line and surface.

Ramsay's technique begins with an idea. From there she chooses the appropriate medium and method with which to realize her concept. Much of her work is painted with acrylic paint applied to polyester film, paper or museum board.

Ramsay's process engages a systematic, mathematical approach heavily influenced by color. She interacts with nature, documents the shifting colors of elements of the natural environment, such as landscapes, fruit, leaves and trees. Often, she returns to the same exact spot at different periods throughout the year, documenting the shifting colors over time.
