Feast for the Eyes
Alex Ramos is a self-taught artist specializing in painting realistic still life in acrylic. His favorite subjects to explore are food and drink—things we encounter on a regular basis often without contemplating their details and intricacies. Some of the paintings in this exhibit focus on whole and cut fruits, while others include manufactured elements like glasses, bottles, and jars. Paying careful attention to nuances of color and the interplay of light with different surfaces and materials, these paintings constitute a meditation on the beauty and complexity of the world around us. Capturing minute details and rendering them in a precise and lifelike manner, they compel the viewer to slow down and observe these objects in a new light.
