Rosa Torres’ pictorial language is most characteristic,
with a remarkable self-demand to reduce images to the
minimum. She so accomplishes in a brilliant way in her
landscapes, in some sort of image deconstruction which
is very typical of her.
In this exhibition, Rosa Torres pays special attention
to the language of the hinterland: the woods and the
mountains, the essence of Mediterranean nature being
reduced to just a few brushstrokes of colour. This view
–her reduction of the reduction- is also applied to her
interpretation of some urban gardens as a step further
in the analysis of nature.
Whichever the case, the outcome is a number of
chromatically powerful works in which compositional
balance is thoroughly studied and the archetype of our
nature skilfully captured. The aim is to transcend the
scenery: to sublimate it and reduce it into a shape with
basic colours, but without missing out on its intrinsic
truth. In lacking the superfluous, the masses are filled
with contents and wisdom.
