FROM THE ARTIST'S STUDIO
In February of 2015, Carl Belz of the Left Bank Art Blog wrote about Debra Ramsay, saying: “(Her) vertical clusters and horizontal stacks recall color field paintings from the 1960s by Gene Davis and Kenneth Noland. Debra Ramsay mentioned her…interest in creating an “ego-less” art… a radical ambition at a time when individual empowerment and expression are everywhere promoted in our culture…Against such excess Debra Ramsay sounds an alternative note in describing herself as a meditative agency, “a conduit for the arrangement of shape and the placement of color…”

This project, began in April 2013 is about time-keeping. Debra Ramsay captured time passing by documenting the change in color within the landscape at the same location (New Berlin, NY) over the course of a year. The artist thinks of each painting as a landscape; a pure landscape, reduced to the actual found colors, transposing a specific landscape to a new location, in an abstract form. For this project, she returned to a specific trail in the forest during spring, summer, fall, and winter. Each time, taking a photo every 100 steps. 18 photos were taken on each walk. Once back in the studio, Ramsay would mix colors with the aide of a program that interprets the color selected from a photo into a paint formula. The viewer will see each season as an individual painting and the entire year as another painting. While working on this project the artist is reminded of Josef Albers' statement: "There is a profound harmony in the immeasurable spectrum of color."
