University of Minnesota Department of Art & Katherine E. Nash Gallery says
Ramstad's art practice investigates the intimate ordinary. He considers the body through transforming physical traces such as hair, clothing, mementos, and grooming implements into mixed media artworks. Ramstad has exhibited in numerous galleries nationally and internationally in Istanbul and Amsterdam. Besides exhibiting visual artwork, Ramstad has made costumes and sets for five touring contemporary dance productions and had residencies at The Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, MANCC in Tallahassee, Les Subsistance in Lyon, France and K3 in Hamburg, Germany.

He has performed in productions by The BodyCartography Project and given numerous lectures about his work and collaborative work with academic Aren Aizura. Ramstad is a recipient of an Art and Change grant through The Leeway Foundation and Professional Development Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts. He has curated and organized six gallery shows in San Francisco and Philadelphia, as well as many free community art events and exhibitions. His work is in collections at The Weisman Art Museum, MCAD and Second State Press. He is currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Art at The University of Minnesota.
