Sofía Ortiz | Biochromatic


Biochromatic comes from the combination of animals and living organisms with an incidental mixture of intense and colourful explosions. Colors intervened and used by natural agents as their own micro biosphere. 

Sofia Ortiz’ work is made up of a series of micro-cosmos that together, manage to turn into a perfectly composed system without previous planification or design that emulates the processes of the natural world. Her fascination for nature, can be appreciated in each and every one of her pieces and she considers it to be a part solution part antithesis to the sameness of globalized consumerism and our contemporary reality.
