Ortiz, Bernardo b.1972 / Sin Titulo
about this work
“My work seeks to point out the gap between a support –a page, a sheet of paper, a wall– and its content –a trace, two words, five blobs of paint, a color. Seen that way, the work may seem self-referential. If content affects its support then that support will also affect its content. As a general rule, the interventions on the support are always subtle: hard-leaded pencils that leave behind extremely sharp and light lines, very thin coats of paint. The “page”defines what may happen in it. It may be the contrast between its transparency and the opaqueness of gouache, the weight of oil paint or the density of enamel”.
