It was an honor to be mentioned by Blake Gopnik in The Daily Beast, on the event of the group exhibition “Session One” at Pocket Utopia Gallery, NYC.
Artist and blogger Paul Behnke stopped by for a studio visit recently. We had a great conversation about color and timing and the dance between rigor in my conceptual strategies and a conscious welcoming of aleatory occurances in my process. Then he took out his camera…and showed you things that I never would inside my studio…

A heartfelt thank you to Sharon Butler at Two Coats of Paint for featuring my painting Yellow Trail Spring with Gray on her blog:
End of summer greetings!
I have 3 things to share with you:
Solo exhibition in Mantova, Italy : curated by Lucio Pozzi
Pocket Utopia Gallery : Session One, an exhibition
Summer has just begun… in my studio
Solo exhibition in Mantova, Italy
“Your works are just right for this space. I like the feeling of unobtrusively hanging delicate sheets of paper on big walls under ancient ceilings.” Lucio Pozzi, curator
“this space” is Palazzo Costa, a landmarked 16th century palace in Mantova, Italy. I met curator/artist Lucio Pozzi when he visited my studio in Otranto, Italy while I was on residency at the BAU Institute in June, 2012.
About the exhibition, which will occur on September 21st from 5-7pm:
MAT / tam
Manto Arte Temporanea
Temporary Art Manto
Annarosa Buttarelli and Lucio Pozzi display art every so often, suddenly, for brief moments and in varied sites, even art spaces.
These are exhibitions or events, things done by people we come to know, whom we ask to do something: friends, family, acquaintances, ourselves and especially many others. They are things to see, but then it also happens that there is stuff to read or listen to or touch or taste or smell.
Our events take place when they occur. They are announced by word of mouth or by email. Normally they last a couple of hours or a bit less. Rather than being linked to a program, the sense of this endeavor generates its meaning while it happens.
Pocket Utopia: Session One
“Pocket Utopia is pleased to present “Session One,” a re-grouped, group exhibition concocted after a mind-blowing, 4-hour lab session, featuring nine artists… and is filled with ideas in a very concentrated space. Close up; painter Debra Ramsay embarks on an entirely new phase in her ongoing investigation into the language of color…” Austin Thomas, curator

My ongoing project, Yellow Trail (Time As Landscape), of tracking time over a year by collecting the colors of the landscape in a specific location continues on to its second phase; Summer. I collected the “summer” colors in mid-April and am working with them now. Thus, it’s now summer in my studio. Stay tuned for further developments…
We’re so pleased to be mentioned in the following:
I hope you’ll have a chance to stop by Parallel Art Space to see the show!

Yellow Trail: A year in time and color that surrounds a place
I’m in the process of returning to a specific hiking trail once each season to document the
color change via photos. I’m using the change in color as a way to track time.
Using a virtual paint mixer program I select one color from each of the 18 photos I collect
during the trip. Then I mix the colors in actual paint, and create a series of paintings
using only those 18 colors, documenting the specific season and place.
The image at the top, Yellow Trail Spring, Colors As Found, shows spring colors
in the order I found them on the trail. ( 20 in x 30 in, acrylic on museum board)

Dual Zone is a place that lies in-between, an investigation into works that derive from painting but have characteristics of sculpture.
The artists in Dual Zone are stretching, pulling, folding, angling and constructing with varied materials, works that exist in that twofold state.
Steve Karlik creates opposing forces that work harmoniously in his “tension and compression” series. Debra Ramsay methodically maps a space using repeating lines and folds that intersect and recede. Karen Schifano’s constructions are playful commentaries on geometric abstraction.
