RUBÉN TORRES LLORCA

Origin: Havana, Cuba
Lives in: Miami, Florida, U.S.A.
Gallery: Juan Ruiz Gallery
Statement
Born in Havana, Cuba Ruben studied Fine Arts at the Instituto Superior de Art and at Escuela de Artes San Alejandro. He moved to Miami, Florida where he still resides in 1993. In his early career he started exhibiting in galleries in La Havana and when he came to the USA new opportunities came along. Having solo shows in Latin America such as Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador and later on in Miami,and New York City among others. His works are in prominent permanent collections such as Perez Art Museum (Miami), Museo del Barrio (NYC), MOCA (FL) MUAC Contemporary Art Museum in Mexico DF.
Because of its nature as a solitary endeavor, independent of collaborative production, visual art became his mode of expression. Film and literature are fundamental influences on Torres Llorca´s artwork, wherein the aim of each piece is to accomplish what a movie or a book does: engage the viewer in a narrative tale or essay that results in discussion and negotiation, and perhaps even cement a viewer’s stance on a particular issue.
There is no overriding statement to each work but rather an encouragement of dialogue. This goal frees the artist from a need to settle into one medium and be limited to that medium. Nevertheless, the tension between social ritual and contemporary aesthetics can be more fruitful when its seed is planted in the traditional art forms of painting, sculpture, and collage.
