FIFTY 24PDX Gallery presents “De Profundis”, an exhibit of new paintings and installations by artists Martin Ontiveros and Justin Lovato.
Martin Ontiveros is an artist, rocker, metalhead, wizard, warrior, father, miscreant, grump, and good friend living and working in Portland, OR. "De Profundis" is Latin for "from the depths", or "out from the depths of misery". In Martin’s words: The feel for the show, at least on my end, is putting a face on some emotions/issues that have given me trouble over the years. Exposing their big, ugly, twisted heads. The first step to any change or recovery in one's self is to be able to give a name to the root cause.
Justin Lovato is an artist from Sacramento, currently residing in Berkeley, CA. Lovato creates dreamlike, ethereal landscapes that reflect his thoughts on nature and our relation to it, human belief systems, the psycho-political-control system, multidimensional concepts, and esoteric symbolism.
