Bio

A graduate of the fine art institute in Tetouan, Morocco, Ramia Beladel is an artist who works with a variety of media. With a conceptual approach, she tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical, and believes in the idea of function following form in a work.

Her artworks directly respond to the surrounding environment and use everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. By applying abstraction, she creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.

Her works never show the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine his/her own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. By examining ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.

Her works do not reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
