Ramon H. Almanza
Ramon H. Almanza's exceptional body of work represents the creation of collective memories.
Physically and visually encapsulating a broad range of profound allusions to the Geometric Abstract scene, enriched with conceptual flexibility, skills and the realities of this time.
Fusing art, literature, painting and sculpture, Almanza engages in the complex principals of geometry and abstraction to offer a contemporary connotation on the epics of essence: our feelings, a notion and the universe.
His boundless repertoire of imagery is paralleled only by the spans of the infinity palpable on these works.
Almanza’s output enclose painting, sculpture, installation and an array of works on paper such as drawings, watercolors and photographs. The physical elements of his proceedings; lines on the plane that do not touch one another, provide to the emplacements a universal autonomy of space as symbolically profound as vast-ranging. By integrating, expanding and regenerating his imagery and technique, he brings to the surface a metaphysical context of self expression and creation.
