About the Artist
Sofie Ramos is a Los Angeles and San Francisco-based artist known for her large-scale sculptural installations of vibrantly painted and precariously placed household forms and textures. Her works bring other worlds to life and offer alternative existences for abandoned objects. Ramos investigates political and psychological issues by obscuring and parodying the relationship between fine art and everyday objects. Her stop-motion video animations reveal the evolution of a space and whimsical, sometimes unsettling narratives.
Born in Cincinnati, OH, Ramos received a BA from Brown University and MFA from University of California, Berkeley. She has had solo exhibitions at Fort Mason and Guerrero Gallery, San Francisco; FISK Gallery, Los Angeles; Mixed Greens, New York; and the Institute of Contemporary Art San Jose. Ramos’ work has been reviewed by Architectural Digest and Juxtapoz Magazine, and she has completed residencies at LightSource, San Francisco and Facebook HQ, Menlo Park. Several of her murals appear throughout the Bay Area.
