Have you been tied up lately?
And no, I don’t mean in the “I-have-been-tied-up-in-a-meaningless-corporate-meeting” or an unwilling victim like the “Damsels in Distress” kind of way. I mean in a collaborative, deeply satisfying way between the artist and the model to create beauty that’s not resent elsewhere.
Ivan Ramirez, whose work graces the cover of FUSE Magazine this month, is the master of tying. He connects with his models so deeply and forces them to come out of their shell that a viewer feels the penetrating gaze of Ramirez’s models when they look at his art. And, the viewers keep coming back for more, every time.
