“The art represents prosperity and abundance found in the natural world”.
Pedro Ramirez’ works exist somewhere between the convergence of ceramics, biology, and horticulture. Moving from rural Virginia to New York City has contributed to his investigations into the relationships that people have with the environment. His fully immersive installations attempt to create a connection between city-dwellers and the natural environment; while his planted pots utilize nature itself as the artistic medium. Ramirez is an educator who teaches ceramics with a focus on organic forms which pay homage to the earth and the environment. Pedro Ramirez has exhibited at First Street Gallery, Jane Hartsook Gallery, and Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery in New York City. He has created special commissions for the Living Beyond Belief Foundation and taught at the Third Street Music School Settlement. He earned his MFA in 2015 at The City College of New York.
