Ramon Vega: Bomb Scare

by Ami Kealoha in Culture on 02 January 2007

Appropriated images become pop kaleidoscopic spectacles in Ramon Vega's work. By isolating figures from the barrage of pop culture, the RISD grad creates snowflake-like patterns—the repeated symmetry has the meditative feel of religious mandalas—referencing sports and fashion. The results, like "Inside Upside" (pictured, click for detail) retain their slickly commercial feel and are also surreal configurations of the body, not unlike the work of Jean-Paul Goude.

His solo show, "Bomb Scare," opens at Invisible NYC this Thursday, 4 January 2006 and runs through 3 February 2006.
