Hansel and Gretel Picture Garden and Pocket Utopia are pleased to announce an exhibition of photographic collages with video presentations by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky along with a window installation of painted silk squares by Debra Ramsay, titled “Seeing Through : Landscape As Time.”

In the window, Debra Ramsay will present “Seeing Through : Landscape As Time,” a grid-like installation on transparent Juan silk. Each square representing a color found on a walk repeated each season, organized by seasons, on transparent silk, allowing the viewer to look through it and layer the actual landscape with the one transposed from its origin 200 miles NW of the city.

This is Debra Ramsay’s second project at the gallery where a direct experience of color in nature is recorded and then the color is computer-mixed. Ramsay’s most recent solo show titled MAT/tam, was curated by Lucio Pozzi at Palazzo Costa, in Mantova, Italy. In 2013, Ramsay was awarded a residency at the Golden Foundation and at the BAU Institute in Otranto Italy in 2012.
