What Is the Importance of the Work of Painter & Sculptor From Loiza, Daniel Lind-Ramos, and the Younger Generations of Scholars Retaking the African Song, Music and Dance Traditions of the Bomba After the 90’s as a Contemporary Tool of Resistance Through Creative Expression?
In early March, his first New York solo exhibition opened at Marlborough Gallery in Chelsea. Then he flew to Florida to receive the $50,000 Pérez Prize from the Pérez Art Museum Miami. He returned to New York to be close to his exhibition, visit with colleagues and friends, and be available for collectors and the news media.
Hyperconscious of the overwhelming political issue in Puerto Rico, Lind Ramos criticises official history to invite the spectator to decolonise his perspective on race, heritage and memory and to claim back syncretism and metaphysics as a cultural legacy.
His work is diverse and sometimes incorporates external elements such as light. He is interested in exploring the concept of weaving, literally and metaphorically, and creates sculptures with different materials (metal, stone, concrete, wood) that make visual reference to that concept.
