Alberto Ortega‘s landscape paintings depict homes and streets where people live their everyday lives, though their presence is only hinted at through parked cars and glowing windows.
As an immigrant to the United States, I am intrigued by American suburban life as depicted in film, literature, and visual art. Through the images I create of American homes, buildings, and man-made environments, I seek to portray society and some of its contradictions. These scenes represent hopes and dreams, the threat of their failure, and alienation. I hope that my paintings set a stage that allows a drama to play out within the viewer.
