Statement

Inspired by American painters Edward Hopper and Charles Sheeler, the Cityscapes in Noir series by Ramsey attempts to capture personal introspection, emotional conflict, and social isolation from a distance. As the viewer, you're invited to follow the traveling figure through highlights and shadows, between angular structures of color as you journey and pause within the surrounding environment.

"Cityscapes in Noir has been a constant creative form of personal expression for over 20 years. Through the flourish of color and fortuitous impression of brush strokes, painting this series still excites me when I allow it to guide me to create a world for the wandering figure," exclaims Ramsey. "This inspiration will continue to evolve the imagery, while maintaining honesty and conversation with the viewers and collectors of my work."

Ramsey is currently pursuing a wider audience in which to present his creative vision. The from South Side to Somewhere project is the latest endeavor to fulfill that ambition.
