Press Release

Debra Ramsay is an abstract artist working in the disciplines of painting, drawing and installation. She maintains a full time studio practice in New York City. Her artwork is conceptually rigorous and process-oriented. With a faithful allegiance to geometry and its capacity to reveal profound truths, she works with mathematical logic to generate or guide form in precise ways. The idea comes first; the search for materials, methods and procedures that will best support the idea follows.

Her creative process develops around repetitive and serial systems. She’s caught up in subtle calculations and decisions of proportion and interrelationships. Once she develops the system for the specific project and determines the calculations, what remains is a form of meditation: she becomes the conduit for the arrangement of shape and the placement of color.

Ramsay was awarded a 2016 residency at the Albers Foundation, a 2013 residency at the Golden Foundation in New Berlin, NY and in 2012 a fellowship at BAU Institute in Otranto, Italy. Ramsay participated in 6 exhibitions in 2015 including Pentimenti Gallery in Philadelphia, PA and Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Brooklyn, NY. Her 2014 exhibition venues included Hansel and Gretel Picture Garden Pocket Utopia in Chelsea, NYC and The Visual Arts Center of NJ, Summit, NJ. In 2013 she had a solo show titled MAT/tam, curated by Lucio Pozzi at Palazzo Costa, in Mantova, Italy.
