Adriana Dorta Sáez, born in Caracas, Venezuela, has a bachelor’s degree in Business and studied Visual Arts at the American Art Institute of Miami. From the early age, she developed a high inclination towards the arts inspired by the effects of light through shades and color in the stained glass of France’s old cathedrals, like Chartres and Notre-Dame en Vaux. The artist has said: “… As an adult, I now perceive my paintings as a form of multicolor light through precise lines that reflect the influence of my passion for stained glass and how it reflects the straight lines that move throughout the day. That’s how I try to transmit the magic that can only live in those sacred windows.” Adriana Dorta also has a great passion for geometric abstract art, as can be viewed in her artwork on show at Art Palm Beach: Totem Series: Native Dreams. It is interesting to highlight that geometric art has been one significant tract in the art of indigenous cultures in The Americas as well as in Europe, Asia, Africa or Oceania. Moreover, these primeval artistic languages also inspired the great international masters of Kinetic, Optical and Geometric Abstraction from which Dorta takes great motivation, such as Yaacov Agam (b. 1928), Josef Albers (1888–1976), Kenneth Noland (1924–2010) and Frank Stella (b. 1936). She has cleverly studied and reinterpreted them, reaching new dimensions and unique creative conceptions through her exquisite and innovative artworks.
