Canadian-based illustrator Randy Ortiz crafts images of sublime death from the darkness, yet in the dense fog of graphite, charcoal, and pastel life reveals itself.
In his print ‘Two Friends Sharing a Warm Embrace in an Empty Room,’ Ortiz pulls beauty and tenderness from the tropes of morbid nightmares. The skull and murk, hallucinations of midnight vision. The image itself is dream-like, a wordless moment rendered in the softest of black.
Two Friends Sharing a Warm Embrace in an Empty Room
is currently available as a limited edition screenprint in Ortiz’s shop.
