Art becomes a game when playing by conventional rules. Emilia Ortiz uses collage to enhance reality in each of her works, beginning with images produced in a cultural exchange and then engaged with by individual experience.  The collage are assembled by the artist’s personal selection from among various currently available social products, resources and images.  Far from being limited to the possibilities fo the brush, the artist extends her creativity by way of elements provided by the society of the times.
