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 colorful mixed media artwork is painted with acrylic on canvas. After painting, the artist cuts holes in the canvas which he embroiders over with the exact color thread. This artwork is wired and ready to hang. This original artwork measures 30 inches high by 24 inches wide. Free local Los Angeles shipping. Affordable U.S. and global shipping are also available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Initially, he 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.
