Artist's Statement

In my case my work has always centred on video, videointalations and scultures which for me reflect more easily those sensations or feelings which are dificult to assimilate or undenstand because of our own ignorance or lack of experience. My idea is to continue working on artistics projects with this philosophy in mind and make the public feel those rich, pure sensations and help them reflect on their own emotional situation.
Love, but also fear, pleasure, anguish, happiness, anxiety and doubt, among other emotions, all make up part of Ortuño's work. He hopes in some way to de-dramatize the situations and eliminate their aggressive tone, so that the viewer doesn't feel them directly, but rather reflects and understands their meaning, the reason for their existence.
