Reinterpretation of anatomical ex votos and hearts.
These objects that offer a reinterpretation of the meaning and use of ex votos: they illustrate the part of the body to which they will be given, but the gratitude for the gift received or the promise made are replaced by fragments of boleros, tangos or poems by the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca.
The frame is made with paperoles, works inspired by the filigree goldsmith technique and traditionally made in paper by cloistered nuns.
The creations of “Ortiz Gadler” are the result of the process of deconstruction, construction and reconstruction.
They work with paper because it is simple and pure and at the same time it is a reflection of lives, images and thoughts.
Old books, magazine photographs, family letters and old postcards find new life in their creations made with the collage technique.
In their creative practice each element that makes up the collages loses its individual identity to become part of a new collective piece, which is then meticulously hand-cut into many pieces and reassembled layer upon layer.
