Project Description


Rafael López-Ramos

Rafael López-Ramos Mirroring Nature show will address the idea of nature’s conquest with the symbolical power of objects, constructed by man and indented to replace the countryside with the city, and nature with new cultural structures.

Graduated with a major in painting and drawing at the Academia San Alejandro, Havana, 1985. 4 years of Master studies at the Instituto Superior de Arte, Havana, 1987-1991.

He currently lives and works in Miami, regularly collaborates with Art Nexus and Art Pulse magazines and the curatorial team of Miami Dade College Art Gallery System.

Mirroring Nature will incorporate a new collection that will reflect the colorful art that only López-Ramos knows how to represent in a unique way. This magnificent exposition will take place in 2033 NW 1st Place Miami, FL 33127 from September 11 to September 28, 2010. The Opening will be on Saturday September 11, 2010 from 7 to 10 pm.

Alfredo Triff describes López-Ramos paintings as “colorful cityscapes that offer something unique to the artist’s eyes: A rowdy distortion on a chassis, an optical illusion reflected on a side-mirror, or just a cool play of reflections on a wheel-rim.”
