Los Angeles native Ramsey Dau makes work that he’s drawn to make. Sounds cryptic, but it’s quite simple, as we are all subconsciously prone to create incredible things, according to him.
That is the base for his work. Dau’s paintings combine masterfully rendered photorealism with a graphic vocabulary of primitive shape, pattern and expressive mark-making. His hyper-realistic “painted collages” challenge the viewer to discover their meaning and mode of creation as in an intellectual path to artistic freedom.
