Ramon Peralta is a sort of restless machine who loves to dig in the unfathomable labyrinths of the soul. With sharp sensitivity and a singular sense of creation, his work becomes a fertile landscape for the imagination and scrutiny. Such is the sense that animates this current body of work in which storytelling and delirium go hand in hand. In this series the artist’s creations comes from the establish relationship with paper as a material, one of tools the artist use in initial process of creation. A compendium of recent works that envisions new lines of exploration, images of sophisticated brush lines turned into characters who trap all sorts of mysteries in their imaginary forest. The strength of color and the sensibility of strokes create a movement that does not exclude the spectator, but includes him, inviting him to activate his visual and emotional perception. Referring, in this case, to a fine art language that attracts both the linear writing as well as the speed with which color changes its attire, its meaning, growing dim and firing up equally whether the image be a character, or vegetation, or fields. His work as a result bring the viewer to a place of hope, rhythm, smile, remembrance or surprise.

Artist Statement

“Art is an imprint of human life, of human creation. One of the focuses of anthropology is the effect of these captured moments in images on the people of their time. I have come to think that artists and anthropologists work hand in hand in the most indirect way as, one produces the work that will be studied by the other as a reflection of what once was.”
