Blue Clouds

Acrylic on Canvas

Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, initially, Ortiz pursued a career in engineering, but in 2000 he began to paint, drawing on his experience with drafting, perspective, and form. After a few years, Ortiz felt that his work was ready to be seen, and he began sharing it with the wider world.

Ortiz draws his palette from the tropical skies of Puerto Rico, colors meant to awaken the viewer’s senses. He begins with representational landscapes, abstracting them as he paints, creating saturated earth from swatches of primary colors. It is out of this richly imagined dirt that wonderfully textured trees emerge, back lit, often, by a darkening sky.

Working in acrylic, Ortiz offers a unified body of work that concurrently offers individual flare. “It is always my intention to address the canvas directly, honestly, and boldly,” Ortiz says. “My heart is always pushing my work to find new language.”

Magenta Sky
36" x 36"
Acrylic on Canvas

Whether I am working with the human figure or landscapes, I am always fascinated by texture, form, and color, which I use to express how I feel about what I am seeing.

Orange Sky
24" x 24"
Acrylic on Canvas

I do not limit myself in what I paint or how I might interpret what I see. This freedom allows my work to move from representational to more abstract.

Reflect of Light

Acrylic on Canvas

It is always my intention to address the canvas directly, honestly, and boldly. My heart is always pushing me to find new language for expression.

Silk of Light

The result, therefore, is not just an intellectual exercise for me: it is being involved in the “now,” always open for change and challenge, always evolving.
