Sin Titulo (Retrato de Daniela Rossell)
Untitled (Portrait of Daniela Rossell)
Oil on wood (1990)

This portrait of Mexican artist Daniela Rossell (b. 1973) was painted after Ortiz-Torres had arrived in the United States. Ortiz-Torres was thinking of Rossell as he acclimated to Los Angeles and the environment of Cal Arts. The scar on Rossell’s arm was the result of a recent injury, received as Ortiz-Torres prepared to depart for California. The mark became, however, a metaphor for Ortiz-Torres’ feelings about the U.S. For him, the border exists as a type of scar: once you cross it you can never be healed. Today both Ortiz-Torres and Rossell are highly-regarded international artists. Rossell is perhaps best known in the United States for her body of work, The Rich and The Famous (1998-2002), in which she photographed wealthy Mexican women in their homes.
