Things that float
New Orleans, Louisiana
Rontherin Ratliff is a multi-faceted visual artist currently working in and out of New Orleans, where he was born and raised. His artistic training was fostered through the nationally renowned arts organization YA/YA, where he now holds the position of Creative Director.
Through his mixed media, sculpture and installation work, he attempts to display a way of thinking about life and relating to the world around him. His creative process demands that he be attentive in the way of a conversation, establishing an exchange of opinions, ideas, feelings and everyday matters, be that his own or that of his environment.
