In this exhibition of paintings, Torres “explores literal and metaphorical veils and how they simultaneously obscure and elucidate what lies beneath,” according to her artist statement. “I considered the misty symbolism in the subconscious world of dreams, as well as the cultural values and obsessions hidden within euphemisms and backhanded compliments.” Wild, colorful and fantasmagorical, the acrylic-on-canvas works sometimes incorporate cartooning, which Torres suggests is “innately dark” because it reduces complexity to simplicity. To be sure, there are layers to be parsed here.
