About

Experimentation with different materials, textures and techniques in each of his paintings has been a point of discovery and a major part of Raul de la Torre’s artwork. In his Fils I Colors series of works, he attempts to find the third dimension through the use of different materials. This vibrant red, black and grey one-of-a-kind 20" by 20" square artwork is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the artwork are painted white and it does not require framing. The artwork is signed and titled by the artist on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included. Initially, Raul removed paint from the artistic equation by slicing the works, combining canvas and paper with selected materials. Gradually, the slicing gained more importance, a reflection, perhaps, of his increased desire to be more aggressive. Embroidery provides another element as it creates thick shadows with organic shapes. When combined with light, these shapes offer different views of the work to various observers. The interaction between the artist, gravity, and the paint is important for the final result. The technique attempts to eliminate the absolute imprint of the artist’s hand. This permits the paint to be a major architect of the final result, giving it a life of its own. It results in infinite and timeless color combinations. In many cases, the different layers of color each represent a temporary state of mind, time, and even places and people. “FILS I COLORS is an attempt to find life, movement and parts that are not static, that change in their interaction with the observer. The different combinations of colors represent different emotions and interpretations for each individual interacting with the works.” – Raul de la Torre SOLO SHOWS 2015 Matthew Rachman Gallery, Chicago, IL 2014/5 Petrossian, West Hollywood, CA 2013 Fresh Paint, Culver City, CA 2012 Launch, Los Angeles, CA 2010 City of Fontana – Art Depot – Experimenting the Color 2010 LACMA – Art Rental Sales Gallery 2009 Seyhoun Gallery - Fils I Colors - West Hollywood, CA 2009 Arthaus 66 Gallery - Ciutats - Albuquerque, New Mexico 2008 Bluebird Art House - Ciutats - Whittier, CA 2007 Bluebird art House - Vermell I negre - Whittier, CA 2006 Infusion Gallery - Mans i textures - Los Angeles 2006 Assunta Fox Gallery - Santa Ana, CA GROUP SHOWS 2016 Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong 2015 Art Project Paja, Maui, HI 2015 Affordable Art Fair Singapore 2015 FP Contemporary, Culver City, CA 2015 Off Ramp Gallery, Pasadena, CA 2015 Love Art Fair Toronto, Canada 2015 Affordable Art Fair New York, NY 2015 Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, CA 2015 LA Art Fair – Artspace Warehouse – Los Angeles, CA 2014 Red Dot Art Fair – Artspace Warehouse – Miami, FL 2014 Art Toronto – Artspace Warehouse - Canada 2014 Houston Fine Art Fair – Artspace Warehouse - TX 2014 Love Art Fair Toronto – Artspace Warehouse - Canada 2014 AAF New York – Artspace Warehouse - NY 2014 LA Art Fair – Los Angeles, CA 2013 825 Gallery – Out There 2013 - West Hollywood 2013 Bluprint Green Gallery – Modernism - Palm Springs, CA 2013 Gallery Y – Collaboration of Circles and Lines – Los Angeles, CA 2012 825 Gallery – Out There 2012 - West Hollywood, CA 2012 Artspace Warehouse – Los Angeles, CA 2012 Bruce Lurie Gallery – Los Angeles, CA 2012 Launch – Artpad San Francisco, CA 2012 825 Gallery – GEM 2012- West Hollywood 2012 Launch – Los Angeles Art Show 2012 2012 825 Gallery – Versus – West Hollywood 2011 Artspace Warehouse - Colors – Los Angeles 2011 Venice Art Walk and Auction – Venice Beach, CA 2011 Cobalt Studio – In Stitches – Chicago, IL 2011 Launch – Merry Karnowsky Gallery – Solid Stripes - Los Angeles, CA 2010 825 Gallery - Aurora - West Hollywood, CA 2010 Fresh Paint Gallery - Gathering - Culver City, CA 2010 Jon Frum Art Foundation – The Strongest of the Strange - Los Angeles, CA 2010 825 GALLERY - OUT THERE - West Hollywood 2010 VENICE ART WALK AND AUCTION - Venice Beach, CA 2010 825 GALLERY - GEM 2010 - West Hollywood 2010 GALERIA GERALDES DA SILVA - Colectiva de artistas espanhois - Porto, Portugal 2010 ARENA-1 GALLERY – Santa Monica, CA 2010 INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR PURO ARTE - Vigo, Spain 2009 ART VERSUS WALLS - Berlin, Germany 2009 ARENA-1 GALLERY - Santa Monica, CA 2009 GODO GALLERY - Highly Toxic - Glendale, CA 2009 SEYHOUN GALLERY - EUROPE NOW 2009 ROBERT DANIEL GALLERY - Tacoma, Washington 2009 Curator of the show "Europe meets America", Seyhoun Gallery 2009 SEYHOUN GALLERY - FREE IRAN – Los Angeles 2009 825 GALLERY - OUT THERE - West Hollywood 2009 SEYHOUN GALLERY - Los Angeles 2009 EL SEXTO CONTINENTE - Barcelona, Spain 2009 Hangar Gallery - Santa Monica, CA 2008- Hangar Gallery - Santa Monica, CA 2007 Bluebird art House- Whittier, CA 2007 Hangar Gallery - Santa Monica 2007 20/20 shows in Palm Springs organized by Blue Bird 2006 Bluebird art House – Whittier, CA 2005 Galerie Roland Hubsch - Luxembourg 2005 Galerie Bonarelli - Narbonne, France 2005 Galerie Friedricks - Kranenburg , Germany COMMISSIONS TROPICANA HOTEL AND CASINO - LAS VEGAS CAFE NIKKI - LAS VEGAS SR.
