SHOW ALERT:
RAMON URENIA AT GALLERY 13W   

Philadelphia, PA


Ramon Urenia finds inspiration for his art in the landscape of run-down factories, empty lots, and foreclosed houses that make up his urban surroundings. Using materials like drywall and steel, he layers surfaces to depict the passage of time and explore the balance between destruction and reform. The results are beautifully textured paintings that uniquely capture a particular social moment.  

Ramon's work will be exhibited with the woodwork artist Chloris Lowe at Gallery 13W, 4504 Regent Street, Philadelphia, PA.  If you're in the area, check out the opening reception on Saturday, February 11th from 7-10pm!

From Gallery 13W:

"My current work is a direct reflection of my environment, specifically the abandoned urban spaces and neglected commercial lots of Philadelphia and Brooklyn. By progressively layering paint and textured surfaces, I explore and recreate time’s passage on walls and structures. Through this process of creation and deconstruction I explore civic conditions, and generate new conversations about what can or cannot be fixed, the legacy of abandonment, the difference between mortality and rebirth, and the reflection of man in his surroundings."
