About this Artwork
Honeysuckle 4 is made with 4 separate pieces that hang together.
Each plexiglass piece has a hanging device on the back, so they can be hung without a frame.
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.
