Explore Beyond Steps with Christina Quisumbing Ramilo

  • by The Cartellino Team

For the most part of her artistic journey, Christina Quisumbing Ramilo a similar motif would be the stairs. The artist's fascination with this architectural wonder remains and with Flight, Ramilo leads us to places undiscovered and introduces us to ideas then-unseen. According to the artist, stairs represent places we would want to be or places unknown to us. These areas worth exploring are heavily inspired by the very stairs she has encountered in her life like the Aztec Ruins in Mexico, the mysterious Winchester House, or the Angkor Wat. Each place holds different meanings to what stairs are. But what we see in Ramilo's work are not simply figurative examples but the bare physicality of the subject.
