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 work on plexiglass is part of a series titled Hue[s]pace.
Hue[s]pace continues Ramsay's investigation of color, location, light and time. Many colors used for this series have been found during her residency at the Josef & Anni Albers Foundation in Bethany, CT.
The artworks demonstrate her thinking of color. Ramsay would borrow, capture, discover color photographically then interpret it into a paint formula with the aid of a computer program, not harming or physically removing anything from its original location.
The sources of these colors come from the natural environment, either a color that is surrounding, such as the sky, or a color from something minuscule, as a flower petal, that could easily be overlooked.
