Inner Space Gallery presents "Measured Disorder," a solo exhibition by Arlington-based artist Andrew Ortiz. Ortiz’ work is a highly personal narrative of the struggles with seizure disorders. Dark in both emotional content and physical appearance, that seek to express the intense psychological impact of dealing with physical challenges. Having had epilepsy for over 30 years, Ortiz has not broached such autobiographical subject matter until recently.

Self-portraits in the traditional sense, through digital manipulation and collage, express a process and an experience, the seizures; the medical “measuring” one undergoes on an ongoing basis. Upon a closer view, his work is also dealing with the concept of neurons and chromosomes, and the changes that differentiate between normal and abnormal brain functioning. He imagines the neurons as lines of communication, branches that reach out to convey information. Sometimes there is a breakdown, and one end does not understand the other. Cells touch each other with violent bursts of electricity; messages go astray; connection lost. Sometimes disembodied, sometimes clinical, occasionally mystical, images that communicate the varied experiences with epilepsy.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 25.
