Flor de Otoño (Autumn Flower) is a garden where the last blooms of the season beckon. A giant, deep red poppy sits at top center, with leaves that extend from stems in shades of marigold, teal and green. The brush strokes show the layers of depth, with colors cooling to a bright magenta as they spiral toward the stigma – itself, an element to inspect and interpret.
About the Artist
Based in central Florida, Nina Ramos is influenced heavily by the colors, energies, textures and emotions in her life. Grounded in her Spanish family and upbringing, she was surrounded in her youth by vibrant artworks, richly textured serape blankets, and painted terracotta pottery from Mexico. She combines those memories with the inspiration that surrounds her daily life, travels and imagination.
