B. 1978 Long Beach, California; based in Los Angeles
Ramona Rosales' poppy, stylized images consider notions of domesticity and femininity, especially its articulation in film and television. For Shelter (2014), Rosales cloaked houses in brightly colored fumigation tents on "Blondie Street" — an exterior set on the Warner Bros. backlot that has been used in countless movies and tv series. Outside the Lines (2013), takes another view of family life, with open-ended narratives of housewifely mishaps designed to test how extreme color harmonies affect the perception of ambiguous scenes. Similarly, Je Ne Suis Pas Seul Sans Toi (2012) is a study in extreme color and implied narrative.
