Niki Ortiz makes amazing art that speaks for itself, but we wanted to share some of her words too. In lieu of a more traditional interview, we asked Niki to have a conversation about her work with someone who knows her well. She sat down to have drinks and pass a notebook with her partner one evening at Ermanos, in downtown Tucson. We loved the night’s handwritten notes so much that we decided against transcription.
