White Hot Magazine has described Vancouver artist Les Ramsay as a “bricoleur of a painter who brings together objects of domestic craft, textiles, folk art and digital drawings in his capacious oil paintings, sculptures and framed needlepoints.” While embracing kitsch, challenging definitions of “good taste,” and undermining hierarchies of high and low, art and craft, Ramsay also brings our attention to society’s discards as evidence of overconsumption, endless waste and environmental damage.
