Diego Ramirez

What do you like about what you do?
The chance to withdraw and focus on my interests without having to assign ‘value' to my time, ‘worth' to my labour or ‘purpose' to my superfluous existence. My studio is like a self-combusting flame that illuminates the nothingness of this insipid world. I can’t get enough of it, I just love it. My artist statement says that I deal with the legacies of colonialism in visual culture. It is a simple yet accurate description of what I do.

How did your Monash Degree help you?
Monash University helped me with art theory and provided me with a snapshot of the art world. It also introduced me to many remarkable people. Probably one of the best things for me, however, was internalising criticism. It inserted a voice in my head that now allows me to assess what I’m doing with varying degrees of objectivity. It is my Monash phantom.
