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 is part of a series whose inspiration comes from Witch Hazel, a deciduous shrub in New York City. It blooms in January with bright yellow crinkly petals and is a welcomed sight in the cold of winter.
Ramsay would take several pictures of a Witch Hazel which lives on the south side of her building. Back in her studio, she would then feed the colors she documents into a computer program, analyzing them and using the analyses to mix paint.
