El Nino Azul de Los Angeles – Oscar Ramos-Rodriguez
Fiber Art: Cotton fabric, stabilizer, poly thread.
Statement from Oscar Ramos-Rodriguez:
My work explores the intersections of quilting, fabric collage, and sculpture. Juxtaposing technical aspects of quilting with the free-motion
expressionism of “thread-painting” allows me the freedom to approach each piece without any certain fixed expectations. Allowing the material to create its own contrast adds to the visual interest of each piece.
My inspiration comes from many sources; a particular fabric, a fixed memory, observations and interactions with people, landscapes and cultures that I experience while traveling or in my own LA neighborhood. My work captures a moment in time that left an indelible impression on my mind. My recent work in particular focuses on the more personal intersection of portraits and moments in time that speak to the Latinx experience.
