Omar Torres / オマール・トーレス


The work of Omar Torres is built around our emotions, nourished by the daily feeling of our existence and the tireless search to find an emotional balance. Through the exertion of total control in his installations, the objects function as a synthesis of the human being.
Through objects Torres represents situations of resistance and tolerance in life. The elements within the frame depend on each other to coexist in a space. The constant use of transparency within the objects serves to convey the idea of the body as a transparent element with nothing to hide or disguise; pain is heavy, tension tiresome and balance draining.
The relationship and dependence between the elements in his images remind us of the emotional ties and links we have with other people. With just a few elements, Torres builds and represents the optimal state; this being a delicate balance, beautiful for its impermanence.
