Chuck Ramirez: All This and Heaven Too

McNay Art Museum

September 14 - January 14, 2018

A survey of works by San Antonio artist Chuck Ramirez (1962-2010). "Ramirez’s large-scale photographs of everyday objects offer a humorous yet poignant perspective on our culture of consumption and waste, and the reality of fleeting life and mortality. Ramirez was inspired by opposing themes—life/death and humor/despair—and incorporates hints of his work as a graphic designer at Texas supermarket giant HEB." His work also draws on his personal narrative, including his San Antonio upbringing, Mexican-American heritage, and his HIV status.
