José Ortega - Giuramento dell’Aventino
In the BOLIVAR series (1980) the artist paid homage to the Venezuelan “Libertador” Simón Bolívar. Works like Giuramento dell’Aventino show the captivating creative approach of Ortega. The composition is built on two-dimensional subjects that are characterized by a lively chromatic uniformity. The selection of unusual colors and the metaphoric representation of significant details and figures identify Ortega as a capable reporter. The artist, in fact, summarizes every historic moment in a few elements. This method, which is supported by an objective aesthetic value, shows his merit: he was able to use one of the most innovative artistic techniques to illustrate contemporary events.
