    Mary Ramsden creates abstract compositions in which amoebic forms fuse with bold, gestural mark-making. Ramsden’s practice is unapologetically painterly. Her works are testament to a commitment to painting as a progressive language that demands our attentive engagement. Strategically refusing referential readings, she makes painted objects whose compositional unity belies the complexity of their making. In Ramsden’s work even the subtlest adjustment is generative. Each shift in palette, variation in scale, or nuance of mark effects an incremental development within a broader scheme of experimentation. A recurring theme in Ramsden’s work is a preoccupation with the edge: a concern that is realised formally and pursued methodologically.

    Mary Ramsden lives and works in London. Her most recent exhibitions include: Mary Ramsden: Couples Therapy, Pilar Corrias, London (2017); You see me like a UFO, Marcelle Joseph Projects (2017); 31 Women, Breese Little (2017); (In / It), The Aspen Art Museum, Aspen (2016); Vanilla and Concrete, part of Tate Britain’s relaunch of the Art Now series (2015); Swipe, Pilar Corrias, London (2015); I am here but you’ve gone, curated by Milovan Farronato with Stella Bottai, Fiorucci Art Trust, London (2015); Panda Sex, curated by Tom Morton, State of Concept, Athens (2014); New order II: British art today, Saatchi Gallery, London (2014); Consommé, Kinman, London (2013); Open Heart Surgery at The Moving Museum, London (2013); Temple Bar in Dublin (2012); and New Contemporaries, UK (2009).
