ARTIST STATEMENT: Naomi Elena Ramirez is a multidisciplinary artist whose work inhabits the mediums of dance, drawing, graphic scoring, and video art. Her hybridization of dance, photography, and drawing creates a performance on the page; a score for a dance completed by the imagination. These diagrams function as prescriptive notation. Scoring what is yet-to-be and inviting the viewer to image and attempt the possibilities. The score can then be translated onto the performing body, the choreographic process passing through 2-dimensional space to return again to the living body. Currently a Visual Art MFA candidate at Vermont College of Fine Arts, Naomi has an Advanced Certificate in Studio Art from New York University, and a BA in Dramatic Art/Dance from the University of California at Berkeley. Naomiís work has been performed and exhibited at various venues in New York City.
