Ralph Almeida has been influenced by, and pays homage to, the great modern artists and their geometric forms, but nature is his greatest muse. His multi-media works are an expression of an individual’s capacity to be at one in his endless world. He has been inspired by indigenous art forms, such as totems, which he regards as a desire for a higher place, an elevated mind, or an altered state. His work is a mosaic of post-human style and is an evolution of his years as a textile designer.
Almeida’s pictographic motifs use linear precision as he connects us to a universe filled with pulsating colors, warm rhythms and vital forms. His lyrical, imagination is adeptly conveyed through the use of mixed media and becoming techniques#. The constant movement and textural changes evoke a pop-surreal confection that delights the senses. There are distinct dual purposes to his compositions. Through a sensory awakening he crafts a path that suggests his underlying plan is to deconstruct the ancient and create a contemporary reality, through a voice that is at once universal and deeply personal.
The exhibit will include abstract paintings, 12 foot decorative totems and hand-painted tiles. It will be showcased at the new gallery everyone is talking about, huZ galleries in San Pedro.
