Existentialism: The Art of Jonathan Ramirez


‘Existentialism’ is a solo exhibit featuring the original works of Jonathan Ramirez. Please join us for an opening reception on Saturday, April 16 from 6:00-10:00 pm, during the Dallas Midtown Artwalk.

A note from the Artist:

I explore the process of death in both the human body and spirit. My work approaches the concept of human existence; the idea that our human forms come from the earth and return at death. Life and death exist simultaneously, and neither is to be more feared or celebrated than the other.

Human identity found solely in the physical bodies humans possess and material items used as social markers, run the risk of being rubbed out and dusted away. Human identity is found in the spirit and memories of the being, that they persist after death and decay.

“I’ve always been afraid to die, but I think I’m more afraid to live…”
– Jonathan Ramirez

SLANT gallery is located on the second level in the west wing of Dallas Midtown (Valley View) at 13331 Preston Rd. (LBJ & Preston).
Exhibit will remain on display through Friday, May 13.
