Dante Ortiz

Visual Artist; Painting & Sculpture
Type: Collage and Assemblage, Painting, Sculpture

As a multi-disciplinary artist dedicated to exploring the intersection of nature, art, and design, I have maintained a 25 year studio practice integrating art and landscape design. My work is guided by a continuous exploration of process and materials as a way of making a contemplative image. Through an array of pattern making, hieroglyphic creation, diorama building, photography, and techniques of collage and painting I attempt to create images and places to reflect upon our ever fluid cognitive and emotional being, embodied in an atmosphere and upon a geological ground.
