Alejandra Ramírez León
Alejandra Ramírez León finds a balance between the use of documentary and pictorial approaches in her artistic practice. Her passion for the miniscule creates a hyperreal refinement over the canvas, transforming the oil to what the untrained eye defines as photographic style. Cinematic nuances dominate her work as well; by engaging a play of light and shadow, she presents the audience with an opportunity for dynamic visual involvement.
The detailed emulation of photographic realism to canvas reveals voyeuristic tones in Ramírez León’s work, creating a parallel relationship between her own curiosity and the viewer’s.
Alejandra Ramírez León was born in 1994 in Cartago, Costa Rica, where she lives and works. Learn more about Ramírez León on Instagram, Facebook or contact her by email.
