Dick Ramsey starting an Action Painting

I harness the muscularity of materials. The support, canvas, and paint have to be tamed into orderly containment of chaos. I transgress boundaries by molding my canvasses into deeper realms than simple two-dimensional art can reach. Whether by shaping the wet canvas into a body landscape of womanly guile, or using the dynamic structure of thrown, dripped, or wrangled paint streams, I intrepidly pioneer past the surface, continually inverting the alternative universe to sing my song.
