About

Nicollette Ramirez is an art dealer, writer, producer and events organizer, nurturing artists and promoting their work. Nicollette’s projects have often combined artists from diverse backgrounds working in different media in various locations. Nicollette named her company Beez And Honey when in 2006 one of her artists suggested she change the name of her art activities to something else than Sexy Girls Productions. Nicollette was inspired by Tom Beale's studio cum gallery named Honey Space, around the corner from the Chelsea Art Museum where she worked at that time. Her art history studies also informed her choice as bees were a symbol of royalty in the French monarchy and appear in other art historical references. Nicollette also wanted to highlight the plight of the bees who were suffering a mysterious mass die off in the early 2000s, which continues today and has been attributed to the indiscriminate use of pesticides. Sacred geometry, the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci Sequence play a role as well in the hexagonal figure of the flower and honeycomb imagery. The style of the logo is taken from spray paint, stenciling and wheat paste in street art. The logo is designed by Stanley Chow, a well known illustrator from Manchester, England.

Projects

Estate of Bob Stanley

Nicollette Ramirez works with the Estate of Bob Stanley. Bob Stanley was a 20th Century American Artist, who lived and worked in New York City for most of his life. He was primarily a figurative artist who was part of the Pop art movement of the 1960s. His early rock and roll paintings and erotic works contributed greatly to mid-century American art. Since 2004 the Estate has actively worked to organize, catalog, present and promote an understanding and appreciation of the work of Bob Stanley. To this end, multiple works have been placed in public institutions in the USA and Europe. The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Henry Art Gallery, and The Greenville County Museum of Art are a few of the institutions in the USA with a considerable collection of Bob Stanley's work.
The available works include paintings from the 1970s to the 1990s. www.estateofbobstanley.org
