Artist: Krystal Ramirez
Exhibition: La Cena Esta Servida
Gallery: CSULB School of Art, Merlino Gallery
Unfortunately I ran out of staorage so I tried to get the whole work in one pic, sorry about that! But this week I really liked Krystal Ramirez’ work. She was born and raised in Huntington Beach. She is currently a senior here at CSULB and will graduate with a major in fine arts, specifically in metal and jewelry. She says that painting is so freeing and she has loved it since she can remember. Krystal took a jewelry class in Orange County School of Arts in Santa Ana for visual arts. That is where she found the love of it. In the future she hopes to go to grad school and start selling her jewelry and artwork.
Krystal’s art consists of various metals. Which include pewter, copper, brass, and sterling silver. She took 3 years to finish this exhibit. Her art is centered around dinner table items. The simplicity of her art work is what made it beautiful.
Her artwork had the message of what happens at the dinner table within intimate relationships. Inspired by nature and the organic forms of the creation of simplicity. Krystal said that each peace reflects someone that means a lot to her. She stressed the idea of having a sit down meal and how much it meant to her. The dinners mean having quality family time which is what makes her very happy. She said that the dinner table is where big decisions were made and the truth came out.
This exhibit was just beautiful. The message behind it was amazing. I love having family quality time at the dinner table and I agree with her that it is where big decisions are made and the thruth is out. Talking to my family at the dinner table of how their day was or what is on their mind is so important to me. It is where laughs and tears are shared. I loved how her art was made out of simple everyday items. It just shows me how art can be anything and everywhere. So awesome!
