Following up on his 2018 solo show Cauliflower Ear, hosted at Creative Arts Coalition to Transform Urban Space (CACtTUS) in Long Beach CA, Ramirez's work continues to mine the dystopian landscape as a metaphorical plane akin to the Surrealist’s desert of the mind, a fictional space to explore personal and societal anxieties, trauma and conflict in our highly polarized times.
