The surreal baroque paintings by Ricardo Fernández Ortega
This incredible painter from Durango, Mexico is Ricardo Fernandez Ortega. He seems to channel the baroque in a way that feels like Bosch or Velazquez would have been proud. Rich, dark hues, expert interpretation of light, movement, gesture, and emotion. Ortega’s ability to convey contour so expertly is truly amazing, and tests the way one think about modern work. It’s hard to find out much about Ricardo, but his work reflects an appreciation of history both in technique and context, while imparting the weight of art that’s existed for hundreds of years.
