Ran Ortner paints waves. But they aren’t the kind that surfers obsess over. And they aren’t the kind of clichéd seascapes under the tired genre of “Surf Art.” From his Brooklyn studio, Ortner works against the accepted conventions of the New York art scene to produce paintings inspired by the collision of light and dark elements on the sea.
