Artist Statement
Ovidio draws inspiration from his immediate environment, juxtaposing forms, shapes and patterns that function as symbols and convey a particular sense of place. Themes that run throughout much of his work are duality and/or struggle, expressed formally through the relationships between inside and out, surface and form, organic and geometric. His recent figurative works were initially inspired by the Moche ritual stirrup vessels of Peru.  Ovidio’s spout variations are intended to invite the viewer to think abstractly as to the vessels contents and purpose.
