I wish I could remember where I first came across the referral to the site of artist Ran Ortner. The scale of his oil paintings of water create a presence simply with their size, and then the movement, light, color and detail of the work brings you in. They’re mesmerizingly beautiful. I would love to see the installations of the paintings in the homes, offices and businesses of the buyers who have purchased his work. I imagine they are all consuming and define the space. You wouldn’t need much else decorating a room around one of Ortner’s paintings.
