Paintings by Adriana Raquel

As a young girl, Adriana Raquel Ramirez grew up housing projects in Richmond, CA. In Easter Hill she plays homage to her childhood memories and the importance of the environments she was raised in. 

Ramirez paints her loved ones and takes inspiration from their surroundings, highlighting key imagery from their own personal Chicanx background to empower them. By uplifting the multifaceted experiences of the people she paints, she challenges the conformity inherent inside the identity process.

In this series of portraits, she challenges the focus on language serving as a tool to define one’s identity. In her work, she relies and glorifies daily details to bring forward lived experience, and move away completely from the act of perception.

In her paintings she pulls inspiration from the details of her own and her subjects’ surroundings to create a collage of moments, items, and colors. Memories and nostalgia linger at the forefront of her paintings in admiration of every unique lived experience. These details are meant to bring you closer to a lived experience as a representation of self and community. 

Adriana Raquel Ramirez was born, lives, and works in Oakland, California. In 2018 she
received her bachelors of arts in rhetoric with a minor in art practice from the university of
California, Berkeley.
