Different Paths: Raúl Ortiz and Scott Mossman

July 8-28, 2017
Opening: Friday July 7, 2017 | 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Studio partners for over 25 years, painters Raul Ortiz and Scott Mossman share a love of color and surface but embrace startlingly different paths to picture making.

Ortiz explores painting by way of process- building up layers of pigment, random mark-making, overlapping shapes, textures, light, scale, incorporating manipulated photocopies of photographs, and the use of heightened-color interactions from which they are derived. Spontaneity plays a key role in reinterpreting and updating the landscape with a contrasting contemporary twist.

Intrigued with the history and formal concerns of painting, Mossman maps out a work from the get-go with images taken from his large collection of vintage picturesque postcards and strategically positions them in an illusionistic background to define and expand the space within the canvas. Through the interaction of these elements and strategies he hopes to inspire a visual dialogue about how a painting can function physically as well as historically.

Visions of Nature and Urban Landscape by Mark Landau

July 8-28, 2017
Opening: Friday July 7, 2017 | 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Mark Landau has always been drawn to the solitude and awe inspiring magnificence of hiking the back-country. Through his photography, he tries to evoke an emotion of transformation to a place you may never have been or to see something familiar from a vantage point you may have not yet seen.  He also blends his imagery to capture the movement, patterns and emotions of urban vantage points and tries to bring this to life with a single image.
