Biography
Miguel Cortez is an artist living in Chicago and born in Guanajuato, Mexico in 1970. He has studied filmaking at Columbia College and fine arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has exhibited his work for more than a decade in Chicago, Mexico, and Spain. Recent exhibitions include a two person show in Juchitan, Oaxaca and several group shows in Madrid, and Casa Elizalde and Centre Civic de Barceloneta in Barcelona, Spain.
 
Statement
My current work is about the minute events/patterns that occur in our lives, they are close-ups of something larger, fragments of our existence, in one way similar to the computer term "fragmentation" which refers to a disk drive in which files are divided into pieces scattered around the disk. The computer separates a file into smaller files throughout many areas of its hard drive. When you try to access a file, the disk drive must search through different parts of the disk in order to put together a single file. These scattered files are part of the larger file being accessed. In my work, each painting seems to be a close up of something larger, and even though they are fragments of a whole, each becomes an individual entity.
