Bradley Ertaskiran is pleased to present a selection of new artworks by Bony Ramirez at MECA, Dominican Republic.
Bony Ramirez’s upbringing in the Dominican Republic, his first encounters with Catholic imagery, and his deep interest in sources as varied as Italian mannerism, Renaissance portraiture, and children’s illustrations reverberate within and around the fictional characters he creates. Each figure appears to be transposed into a changing theatre of symbolic surroundings and backdrops. Ramirez creates his heavily stylized, proportionally distorted figures on paper, and adheres them onto wood panels often featuring dramatic, colourful backdrops of Caribbean imagery.
