Whether painting in acrylics or sculpting with stone and resin, Daniel Ortega Buitrón creates color-blocked works that balance between natural formations and artificial objects. Clear resin and solid stone are seamlessly spliced together in Ortega Buitrón’s works. Each mixture of ice-like resin and saturated stone contrasts and synthesizes disparate materials to create new geological creations. Even in paint, the works emphasize tactile experience, juxtaposing clear, straight divisions and rough rocky edges. Each piece references the artificial and natural at play in society and the human environment.
Ortega Buitrón lives and works from Valencia, Spain.
