2. Cruz Ortiz: Los Jardines
Nancy Littlejohn Fine Art (Houston)
January 27 – March 12, 2022

A statement from Cruz Ortiz, via Nancy Littlejohn Fine Art:

“I am tired ————-over the years painting has taught me so much — it has shown me how to go beyond what an image really represents or how an image functions – I can ask questions like ‘is this a story?’ – ‘is this a poem?’ —-what happens next is a desperate hunger to formalize on unlocking the knowledge of the image —-this is where I have to step back— to actually see what is happening through my practice. Where is painting taking me?
