Detail of Fils I Colors DCIV


In his Fils I Colors series, Raul de la Torre starts by painting on canvas or paper, then makes cuts in the surface and fills those gaps with embroidery. The embroidery gives his work a unique texture, while representing the individual life experiences that become a part of our DNA. Color creates its own language in de la Torre’s work, meant to be interpreted differently by each viewer.
