Cristian Ordóñez is a Chilean artist currently working in Toronto within the mediums of photography, graphic design, and printed matter. Ordóñez’s work has been inspired by his cross-cultural upbringing; he was born in Chileand spent time living between Santiago, Christchurch, New Zealand, and Miami, US. His photography explores the parallels between ideas such as memory and belonging; how these concepts tie to his cross-cultural experiences. Territory and architecture; how different spaces can convey character through human absence and traces. Vernacular and mundane; finding a relationship between ordinary moments and how routine can create beauty. These photographic themes are presented through photographing landscape, urban structures, portraiture, and abstractions.
