Biography

The recurring subject of Sandra Ramos’s work is the artist’s painful experiences living in and parting with Cuba, and the country’s drastic upheavals of the early 1990s. The themes she explores include the severing of family ties and the loss of childhood or innocence; these autobiographical recollections become a metaphor for greater political, social, and economic concerns. Ramos’s works on paper, engravings, and installations are frequently strung together with a visual narrative in which the artist is cast as the main protagonist, embodied as a child-like explorer. Her drawings sometimes contain collaged materials culled from her day-to-day experiences, like maps and passport pages.
