ANDREA ORTÚZAR

Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition
September 16 - October 6, 2015
Reception: Thursday September 17, 2015 6-8 PM

Born into a family of artists, Andrea Ortúzar was exposed to art at a young age. Her academic training and experience allows her as a visual artist to engage with a myriad of techniques and materials in her work. The result is a highly original product that meets at the intersection of copper, aluminum, vinyl, acrylic paint, and photography. Working on metal ‘canvases,' Ortúzar makes use of these mixed media to depict both urban and natural landscapes, sometimes synthesizing the two. The images are often adorned with flashes of color that are at once frenetic and magical, guides to a more complete understanding of memory and self.

Ortúzar’s paintings are an exploration of her own memories and cultural identity. Equally, they are an invitation for the viewer to embark on this same quest, this process of self-discovery. Though Ortúzar’s depictions bear personal significance, they are, in a wider sense, a call for remembrance. The sky, the streets, and the trees are all part of a collective memory worth holding onto. What the artist examines, we remember.
