Juxtapoz Magazine - Bony Ramirez' "Cayman Tears"

A couple months ago, when we spoke to Bony Ramirez on the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, we got the again tale of the sudden transition in his existence at the age of 13: the Dominican child finding himself in suburban New Jersey with a new life. That on your own proves to be a brilliantly vivid place to start when you get started to glance at the artist’s function. There is a longing and recollections at participate in that look to get sharper with age. As I wrote at the time, “His do the job is about memory and remaking the DR in his head, a combination of folktales and his very own impressions, as well as a effective sense of the place he arrived from and where he exists now. His function also asks issues what it usually means to be a queer artist, what it means to take care of a painting like an object and how to project a character with a sense of reconnecting with a heritage.”

Just opened this previous weekend is Cayman Tears, Ramirez’ new solo exhibit at François Ghebaly in Los Angeles. The show characteristics several of the hallmarks that he has been discovering, having a few-dimensional art and physicality to experimental concentrations. The present characteristics “6 works executed on panel along with a sculptural set up of metallic chains embellished with seashells, coconuts, and forged iron suspended from the gallery’s rafters, and a important new sculpture with a taxidermied bull at its middle, CAYMAN TEARS presents a comprehensive introduction to Bony Ramirez’s apply and a scarce window into Caribbean life.” The do the job has daily life, it has a feeling of contact that is scarce in a gallery environment and at the coronary heart of what Bony needs you to sense. He wants you to immerse by yourself in a memory that, if not your possess, is a little something you can almost flavor and scent. —Evan Pricco
