DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKS :
Ramadori’s painting style is characterised by an emphasis on colour , which is a protagonist of his work . Critics define the works of Ramadori as inner landscapes , places of remembrance , colour suggestions , also with colour references to his homeland. His works feature signes and symbols , including geometric shapes ; in particular the triangle , a Pytagorean shape , is a symbol of universal harmony . Letters and numbers are simultaneously counterposed as visual forms and codes , so that the enrire surface of the painting becames a broader symbolic shape . Musical scores , speaking of alchemy and esotericism . But if it is true that colour dominates , it is also true that it is often crossed by thin lines, slender threads that underline the precriousness of life ! The techniques used for creating these worsk are : oil on wood , oil on canvas and mixed techniques with the use of enamels , tempera and crayons .
