American Painter Daniel Ochoa….
“I navigate cultural margins depending on the context of the situation. My work explores the complexities of identity with the understanding that perception is relative. Ambiguity, movement and obscurity play a role in the relationship between the figure and environment. Body language is an important signifier of the emotional temperament of the figure. Each work requires multiple layers of paint and a variety of techniques including masking, sanding, and dripping. I use both English and Spanish words interchangeably to title works which conveys the duality of my identity.”
