With a unique ability to create a depth perspective reminiscent of virtual reality, Torres invites viewers to immerse themselves in a world where art transcends mere representation.
Contessa Gallery is thrilled to celebrate the extensive acclaim garnered by Alexi Torres with new museum acquisitions, institutional collections, and notable private procurements. Having presented his first solo show in the Hamptons two years ago, followed by consecutive appearances at Art Miami, Contessa Gallery has been a steadfast supporter of Torres's artistic journey. As excitement mounts for his upcoming epic solo show at Art Miami 2023, this exhibition presents a golden opportunity for collectors to acquire his exceptional creations before they take center stage in Miami.
An exciting addition to this exhibition is the introduction of a new body of work, where Torres's exemplary woven techniques provide a textured and compelling backdrop to the subject, achieved through a heavy impasto technique. This evolution in his artistic style further highlights his mastery of technique and demonstrates his ceaseless quest for innovation.
