         The allure of Adriana Ramirez photographs lies neither in technique,
nor in composition, but rather in how she uses conventional objects in an
unconventional way. These objects remain within their usual contexts and do
not change in order to become art.    Instead, there is always some kind of
twist of reality or something slightly amiss.     Or there is repetition of
patterns or elements. In other cases, there might be a surprise encounter, or
a perverse coincidence.
         In any case, Ramirez's strength is her intuitive ability to see,
find and capture what is amiss, what is not allowed, what is controversial and
what is out of sync. Since photography is her lifestyle, she has an uncanny
ability to be at the right place at the right time. Thus sharing her
perspective of what is real.

A visual essay is a construction pretty similar to a
written or spoken phrase, where the meaning of each elements –
images or words- make a tiny turn to be in concordance and
built a whole proposition.

All this assuming meanings are not static, and that relations
between sign, significance and interpreter have a dynamic that
can be altered by factors as the “topic” ( the issue talking
about), the “social conventions” (the pre-agreements
established by the community), “the pertinence” (relation among
the phrase’s utility and the conversation’s objectives), and
the “circumstance” ( the tacit elements that surround the
speakers).

A visual essay takes advantage of the sway of each picture
between the concepts of presentation and significance.
A picture is not a reality and neither a sign.
It is always wondering away among these two extremes.
Then, is when photography is articulated with others, that it
experiences processes of signification analogous as a word when
is used and leaves of just re-presenting.

drawings and sculpture
          Using unusual
materials, recognizable
 forms appear in front
      of the spectator,
       playing with the
    concept of drawing.
 SPACE DRAWINGS reverse
        the logical and
    geometrical drawing
 process. In real life,
 line does not exist as
 an independent entity;
   what is perceived on
 the reality depends on
the light's effects on
     the matter and its
   planes. On the other
         hand, in these
        sculptures line
   suggests and defines
   the spaces, inviting
 the viewer to fill the
   vacuum since his own
         experience and
         recollections.

   The effect of invisible
  and imaginable planes is
     consolidated with the
        photographs of the
      sculptures and their
 shadows. Contrary to what
          happens in three
     dimensions, where the
gesture is limited and the
      lines have the rigor
  imposed by the source of
         each idea, in the
     pictures, objects are
      repeated, distorted,
 becoming almost a sketch.

In a second instance we
have the PAPER DRAWINGS
where the line is passed
by a laser burning the
spaces between planes:
then the original drawing
is put together to
reconstruct each one of
the lines in a sculptural
language –a plane that
goes down, other that
crosses and a third that
goes up-, and in that way
giving back to the line
its original condition
that is the game of light
and planes.
The minuscule scale in
which this happens
pretends to offer the
spectator a swing between
what is perceived (the
line) and what it is (the
vacuum).

And third, the CONTAINABLES.
These are solid pieces,
semitransparent which are based
on the interface (the moment in
which man, tool and action
cross), of the objects and in
the dialog that exists between
its aesthetic, semiotic and
utilitarian functions. They are
the vacuum of elements as
common as the spoon or the cup
for drinking tea.
