Xavier Cortada’s “Diatoms” at Turkey Lake plaza near Orlando, Florida is an exceptionally vibrant work, the limited-edition prints belonging in the permanent collection of Florida’s Department of State.
The artist prints showcase diatoms, sun-loving, single-cell organisms that harness the power of the sun to convert carbon dioxide into life-giving oxygen. These works promote a conceptually driven experience through an aesthetically striking composition.
One of each of the “Diatom” prints (series of 5) from “Florida is…Nature” are in the collection of Florida’s Department of State in Tallahassee, the works also having been exhibited at the Orlando Science Center, The Frank (Frank C. Otis Gallery and Exhibit Hall), and Creative Pinellas as an integral part of the artist’s exhibitions.
Xavier Cortada, “Florida Is…Diatoms: Sunshine,” archival ink on paper (signed, numbered, limited-edition print, edition of 5), 12” x 12”, 2015.
The artist print showcases diatoms, sun-loving, single-cell organisms that harness the power of the sun to convert carbon dioxide into life-giving oxygen. Cortada believes that we should all harness the same power to create more clean energy in the Sunshine State.
In 2015, Cortada created three permanent public art installations in three Florida Turnpike plazas, making them cultural destinations in and of themselves. Each focused on a different aspect of the sunshine state’s natural beauty: Endangered Animals (Ft. Drum Plaza), Diatoms (Turkey Lake Plaza), and Wildflowers (West Palm Beach Plaza).
All proceeds from the sale of this print will benefit Cortada Projects at Pinecrest Gardens. To learn more visit www.cortadaprojects.org
