About

Adebusola Ramsay (b. 1983, Lagos, Nigeria) based in Glasgow, Scotland.

An abstract artist, whose practice has developed as a therapeutic endeavour over the last 20 years; features evocative colour composition and textural detail, mostly with acrylic medium, exploring different forms of mark-making. Influenced by patterns and symbols, in particular weave/pattern-making of African cloths such as Aso-Oke, Kente and Adire

Graduated in 2004 with Bsc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences at University of Glasgow.

I paint to allow myself to think over what has been observed, to ruminate safely

I play with mark-making, create patterns and structures

I paint with colour to be evocative, to explore colour relationships

I paint so I can learn to play or remember how to play
