5-dsc04619 The reporter and art-critic Josep Mª Cadena presenting the work of this artist. He is holding a book by Hilari Raguer, Montserrat monk that Mr. Cadena used to illustrate a “curious” comparison: the “lectio divine” (the quiet reading of the Bible) a monks’ practice that reminds Mr. Cadena of Ruiz Ortega’s painting style. A relaxed style which surprises in somebody that, as in the case of this painter, also is a professor in the active world of the Universities.
