WATERCOLOR AS DEVIR
"The world of watercolor differs by the presence of the transparencies as hallmark". It is precisely in the areas where the nuances are more present there is the deepening of this technique, consisting in the conversation between water, paper and pigment in a large study of possibilities.
The trajectory of The Ivone. Ramos includes continuing search for an increasingly enhanced visual development process. In this sense, to choose one of his favorite themes, the dance, has the concern focused his gaze on the movement of the dancers, as well as their positions.
What is at stake, is the most figurative work as those in which the abstraction is present, It is the way of thinking about space and conceive it as a world in which we must act according to criteria that are being formed by the dialogue between tradition and innovation, between a few certainties and many doubts.
It is when cutting the references and performs color passages Ivone The. Ramos reaches its densest moments. "Thus establishes the steps of its own proposal, in which is not limited to what you see, but plunges in what is not shown and what the watercolor allows in terms of becoming.

Working with Gallery is difficult. The work takes on a value exacerbated, At my point of view, which makes the complicated sale. What's up, exhibits a preference for in cultural, where the artist and curator can negotiate more likely to sale.
