About the artwork
Often known as a ‘colourist’, Ramsey creates works that pay tribute to his love for colour with wild tints and fantastical and imaginative depictions. The distinctive abstractness and conspicuous hues are a deliberate effort on the artist’s part to create something unusual and refreshing, while also being an expression of his mental processes and artistic inclinations. This is evident in this painting of salmons; with its bright red strokes on the blue background, creating a surreal imagery.
