Artist Statement

Maria del Pilar Ortiz www.pilarortizfineart.com Po@pilarortizfineart.com pilarrc3@gmail.com 240.421.9160 I was born in Bogota Colombia and graduated from the National School of Art Bogota, where the colors and forms derivate my art, I'm a eclectic figurative painter, my themes are normally the feelings which I follow. The works are abstract in composition, realistic in form, and surreal in content. Striving to surpass the limits of art on a pictorial level, I hope to move and satisfy viewers in a heightened way by surprising their expectations, conforming to order. The freedom to draw from a multitude of disciplines and combine painting and sculpture, with poetry, has allowed me to fully explore a creative style that has always dominated my working method. My favorite medium is definitely oil, but sometimes work with watercolors and acrylics to find a wonderful mix media alternative. Follow my feelings and the sense of life perform traditional Latin Music as a Folklorist and Performer.
