east window SOUTH, a new gallery for underrepresented artists in Boulder Colorado, is honored to open its doors with an exhibit of photography, collage and one short film by André Ramos-Woodard.
The gallery’s inaugural exhibit explores the deeply personal and broadly political struggles of systemic racism across the USA. Integrating images from news broadcasts, Americana, and personal photographs, André ‘s work takes a head on look at what it means to be a Black, Queer, and Non-binary person living in America today.
Born in Nashville, Tennessee, André Ramos-Woodard is a contemporary artist whose works evoke feelings of dreams and surrealistic narrative. Primarily working with photography and collage, he conveys ideas of communal and personal identity through internal conflicts. Ramos-Woodard is influenced by personal experiences he went through while discovering his own identity – he is queer and African-American, both of which are well-known targets for discrimination. He uses his art to accent the ideas of separation between him and the viewer, specifically those that may not resonate with the ideas of the “Other” or problems within minority groups in contemporary culture. Ramos-Woodard received his BFA from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, and has recently completed his MFA at The University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
