I am so intrigued by the mixed media and installation artist Esther Ramirez. She uses simple paper, various textiles, fabrics and tape to form her artwork. As you can tell, color and pattern is what remain constant throughout her work. I love the variety of shapes and lines she creates to add a sense of playfulness in each installation.
Most of her work is made by printmaking, hand cutting and collage with assembly, she says.
I love the details of die cuts in the series above. The configuration of lines, space and patterns are without a doubt stimulating.
The below image is a true artist at work. The process is indeed what excites me the most about art. It's an artwork in and of itself.
Aside from installations, she makes little paper goods and fun wrapping. It's such a crafty and unique way to decorate a gift. The printmaking on some of the packaging adds a certain dimension of texture and quality to the unique shapes she's created.
And my favorite has to be her self-imposed piece. I am so drawn to artists that use themselves to speak as artwork. And what better way than to cover your tights in bright coral dots!
