Mixed Media Sculpture:

Art that captures the spiritual ethos of the desert.

Medium & Message: Light

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that…” Martin Luther King. Darkness evokes fear while light dispells it. Light and dark are metaphors in life. The desert is evocative. The ebb and flow of each day and night captures my imagination and delivers the gift of inspiration. The pandemic slowed time allowing me to dwell longer and deeper in the illusion and mirages of the desert I love.

The focus of my work is Light. The Light in my journey has illuminating the darkness in my journey. Flourishing in the desert requires being guided by Light.”

Larry J. Ortega
