Hindsight: The Paintings of Roni Sherman Ramos




Tuesday, 9 May 2023 to Saturday, 27 May 2023
Thursday, 11 May 2023 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Atlantic Gallery is proud to announce the fifth solo show by Roni Sherman Ramos who has been exhibiting here over the course of eight years.

In these 51 small oil paintings a story is told about looking back in time. The title, “Hindsight”, refers to that fuller understanding of the sense of environment and state of mind when recalling a place or an event.

Ramos’ paintings are not limited to a literal depiction of time and place; they are rather a mind’s eye view of having been there.

One painting, “Barn”, draws us to a pasture where a building simply sits, a familiar scene. In another, a warm beachy day evokes memories of Puerto Rico vacations. In contrast, a number of Ramos’ images serve to provoke the imagination: abstract forms conjure serene, dreamy days, weightless colors float, nighttime moodiness plays in opposition to images of vivid brightness.

To be sure, take all the time you need to explore the many facets of “Hindsight”.

In the last two years, I discovered a different perspective from working small. I became hyperaware of texture and materials, adding marble dust and sand and thereby creating a rich, nearly three- dimensional surface.

In contrast to larger scale work, small panels make for quicker resolutions of compositional problems, especially in the more immediate acts of taking away and building back – allowing traces of “history” to show through. Another kind of “hindsight”. These small works have both delighted and confounded me along the way.
