Studio Visit With Debra Ramsay: A Subtle Marking Of Time and Distance
Ramsay in her studio on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, 2013
The Artist's Statement:
My artwork is conceptually rigorous and process-oriented. With a faithful allegiance to geometry and its capacity to reveal profound truths, I work 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.
My creative process develops around repetitive and serial systems. I’m caught up in subtle calculations and decisions of proportion and interrelationships. Once I develop the system for the specific project and determine the calculations, what remains is a form of meditation: I become the conduit for the arrangement of shape and the placement of color.
