Naimar Ramírez is a multidisciplinary artist who works mostly with and on paper, and oscillates between photography and sculpture. She graduated in 2011 from the University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Design and Photography, and obtained a Photography MFA in 2013 from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her artistic interests lie in the space that opens between the image and object concepts, as well as in visual translations that occur when the visible collides with the tactile. This leads to working in a medium-independent manner that is free from overly structured techniques and yields variable results. Her training in the design and architecture fields informs her artistic practice, allowing for a systematic approach to her work, which unifies process, concept, and context.
Ramírez has exhibited individually and collectively in galleries, museums, and project spaces in the East Coast of the United States, and across Puerto Rico. She is best known for her paper masks, from her solo show in the SCAD Museum of Art in 2015, with another part of the series presented in Photo London 2018. In 2016, she was one of the recipients of the Lexus Grant for Artists. She is represented by Petrus Gallery, in San Juan, PR.
