  October 5 - October 26    How It Felt   RAMIE FRANTZ  “I travel as a means of research to tell the stories I feel are worth telling through painting. These stories may be about people, a place or nature, but they all have a intertwined purpose — to tell a story of an interaction. I spend time in places that I feel an energy pulling me: an undisturbed creek on a mountain side, the red desserts of Moab or waves crashing into a cliff on the north western coasts. I create my own interpretations of those interactions in my studio in Denver.  I use my entire body as I’m working to channel this same energy I felt in the moments I’ve experienced from my travels. My process requires all of me to physically pour and move around paint as if I were the water stirring in a river. My work requires a flow of energy from my body to my hands transferred to the mediums I’m using in order to properly capture my interpretation of the experience. Ultimately, I seek to understand the endless process of growth to better understand the moments that make us feel truly alive.”   www.ramiefrantzart.com
