Tamara Ramos is a successful International artist who has showcased her artwork in London, Italy, New York and New Jersey as part of UNICEF for Italy. This versatile artist most recently appeared at the Skyroom Rooftop Lounge in Manhattan to show off her art in the form of fashion with her Bubi fashion collection. On Saturday, June 29, 2013, Tamara Ramos will present her solo art exhibition, “Prisonera” at the EMOA Space Gallery in New York City along with special guest photographer Andrew Roach from Brighton, London, and also introducing Cindy Ridolfino-Grainer, a mix media artist from New Jersey. Together they will bring together collective pieces of art that is diverse, intense and intriguing for the eye in an unforgettable event that will mesmerize and illuminate the connotation behind women imprisoned. Live entertainment will be provided by tribal dancer Ester DeCew and vocalist Taylor Pickett-Stokes.
“I don’t think there are many images so direct or many photographers as straight as Tamara Ramos in the contemporary art world. Captured in her assembled art work, there is a lot of truth: reflecting fears, hopes and emotions that are true form and can change the feelings of someone looking at her pieces,” says art critic Anna Mola from Italy Voices.
The exhibit reflects on chapters of Tamara’s life and her elucidation of a “Prisonera.” Her direct and straight contemporary art will surely leave everyone with philosophical thoughts before the night is over. The photography of Andrew Roach brings out amazing images of his interpretation of women and their vulnerability, strength, sexuality and power.
The event, free of charge, is located at 530 West 25th Street #407 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. You can RSVP on Facebook.
About Tamara Ramos: Tamara Ramos started to fall in love with art at an early age. Her father, a painter would paint images of his homeland Puerto Rico for hours. However, life was not always easy for Tamara. Her father, was also a chronic alcoholic, who would lock her and her brother out of the house for days, leaving them homeless. During this time, a good friend gave Tamara her first camera and she would go on to take amazing photos inspired by life on the street capturing friends, strangers and the nightlife. Photography crept in and out of Tamara’s life through the beautiful times as well as the hard times. Tamara’s artwork indicates the expression of social issues in her heart. “It is the only way I can do my part to change certain situations that I am unable to fight for. If I leave this world tomorrow my only dream is to change or inspire someone else to be the person they have always wanted to be and to do the things they have always wanted to do,” says Tamara.

About Andrew Roach: Andrew Roach always had a camera on him for as long as he could remember. His art is distinctive with a “painterly feel” to the photos and a style that became a signature of his work, perfecting portraiture, headshots, and fashion and fine art nude photographs. Working with local artists on their profiles gained him access to the 13 Women Exhibition in 2012 as the event’s personal photographer. In 2013 the exhibition allowed 13 men to participate alongside the women and Andrew was proud to be amongst the group and also shoot portraits of each artist.
