Raúl Ortiz: Landscapes Remixed

@ Noyes Cultural Arts Center

2nd Floor, 927 Noyes Street, Evasnton, IL 60201

Opening Sunday, December 11th, from 2PM - 5PM

On view through Friday, January 6th


Ortiz’s current work, “Landscapes Remixed: Recent Paintings,” is a series of paintings that reinterpret/reframe and update the landscape with a contrasting contemporary twist. He creates poetically contemporary landscapes that capture an array of subtle overlapping shapes, textures, light, scale and heightened color relationships that are derived from the tradition of abstraction. This is achieved by juxtaposing layers of expressive brushstrokes, adding / subtracting patches of flat spaces for contemplation, building up light on a water’s surface and randomly framing areas by using a silhouetted image, e.g. a tree or flora, to compose a unique space – shifting the composition by dividing the picture plane.
