Ruben Torras // Technicolor

From May the 26th  until June the 28th 2016
Opening: Thursday  the 26 of May at 19 hours

Technicolor it is the title under which Ruben Torras-Llorca offers a journey to the known, forgotten, the near and at the same time the unknown. The resources of the artist are the ones from a society full of graphic memories. The image as a concept, without distinguishing procedures or techniques. A hotchpotch where painting, photography, colour, advertising or the texture of the materials are all put together in compositions that teach us how to look to the own and the ominously common.

It is about about the reunion of the apparently opposite. A black and white full of color, humor, a mix between documentary images that fit between fields that shine, tonal and geometric compositions. Fracture and mistake. The threshold between analog and digital, from thousands of images that are stored in the back of the retina, which seems familiar, and that join to form a new experience. Visual fantasy that seek the irony of the new, the experience of the gaze and the narrative at the emerge of the bizarre. A sign to the spectator that is driven to seek the history under the image, just as the artist works in his investigation.
