Write up in The Salt Lake Tribune by Ben Fulton

Here is a section of Ben Fulton's article

"National artists on display, such as Brooklyn-based painter Daniel Ochoa, deconstruct identity in even more radical ways. Ochoa’s large-scale self-portrait obfuscates his face in aggressive brushes of orange-red, and with undecipherable words seeping into an eye socket, a portion of the head and a corner of the chin. The effect is both placid and unsettling."

Write up in Park Record

(when you get to the publications website, search "Julie Nester Gallery, Daniel Ochoa, Portraits." The articles should come up.
