TREACHEROUS: New Work By Michael Ramirez

FRESH Art Long Island Presents:


New Work by Michael Ramirez

Opening Reception Thursday, November 5th From 7pm-11pm

at Toast CoffeeHouse
242 E Main St Port Jefferson, NY

1. hazardous because of presenting hidden or unpredictable dangers
2. characterized by faithlessness or readiness to betray trust; traitorous.
3. unstable or insecure.

Most artists' in this extremely demanding/fast paced society tend to look over what is important and push aside what they truly feel to keep up with the competition. This showing is an attempt to slow down for a bit of self evaluation. Inner most secrets and struggles are revealed when you pay close attention.
There is no graphic work here to cover up mistakes and re-touch imperfections, this is just the opposite- this is the glorification of error, for it is what we learn our greatest lessons from.

"As a young expecting Father, a Lover, a Brother, a Son- Just as a person in general I fear of one day becoming 'treacherous'. I do not want to let those I care most about down. Hopefully by putting these personal pieces out for the general public I can find the strength I need to become as strong of a person as I need to be right now."

Treach•er•ous. is artist Michael Ramirez's first solo exhibition. Michael Ramirez is a student at the School of Visual Arts, and Art Director for the online publication New York Twist Maga

Through December 1st, 2009
