From the museum:

Light Cones—a term used to express the path a flash of light travels through spacetime—presents Mexican artist Tatiana Ortiz-Rubio’s long-held interest in the complexities of time. Working in charcoal and graphite, the artist’s series of cloud sketches and murals delve into the human experience of time and its contrasting, yet indivisible, philosophical, scientific, and spiritual notions. In a nod to Jorge Luis Borges’ Clouds I sonnet, “We are the ones who drift away. The host / Of evening clouds dispersing in the west / Is our very image. . . ,” Ortiz-Rubio composes immersive, nebulous scenes to explore the instant: the small window of time we call the present, and the space between transitions.

Tatiana Ortiz-Rubio is a Mexican artist whose work includes oil painting, drawing, muralism, and installation. She received her MFA from the New York Academy of Art and BA in art history and visual arts at the University of San Diego. She has exhibited in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and United States, including Centro Cultural Tijuana, Quint Gallery, Instituto Cultural Cabañas, and Bread & Salt Gallery, where she also completed a residency. Ortiz-Rubio currently teaches drawing and painting at University of San Diego.
