LINEA: A new exhibition featuring Gabriel Ramos is opening Oct 7th




About the Artist:

Gabriel Ramos was born in 1987 in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and currently lives and works in Tampa Bay, FL. He obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the University of South Florida in 2011 and his Master of Fine Arts from Cornell University in 2018. Some of his recent noted achievements include being a recipient of the 2019 Creative Pinellas Professional Artist Grant, the Cornell Council for the Arts Grant and a nomination for The Dedalus Foundation Master of Fine Arts Fellowship in Painting and Sculpture. His work has been featured in many local and international publications and has been shown nationally and internationally in locations such as the National Gallery of the Bahamas, The National Gallery of Jamaica, The Fotofest Biennial and The Gasparilla International Film Festival.

Ramos’ evocative wire sculptures and works on paper are inspired by his childhood memories of Puerto Rico’s energetic-filled culture, with each piece being a fantasyland of rough-and-tumble lines frozen in time whose meanings are discovered only through explorations of the details contained therein.

Artist Statement:

My work references a fragmented imaginary space that is layered, anomalous, and uncanny, a place that is surreal, familiar yet abstracted, and only accessible through the investigation of remote details and signifiers. It involves the construction of abstracted compositions, often in a linear manner aligned to a fusion of tropical landscape elements, architecture, and various other representational components. The inspiration for these constructions is drawn from childhood memories of my home in Puerto Rico, reflections on cultural amnesia, identity, displacement, and the potentiality of the line in humor, transformation, failure, and action.


Leslie Curran Gallery is proud to present Gabriel’s latest collection of wire sculptures and works on paper to you.
Join us for the opening reception this Friday, October 7th from 6-9PM.
