About This Painting

The objects reproduced in this pictorial series are spaces that were once open to the uneasy growth of nature, now rescued from its essence, the environmental dimension that is its most productive version measured in terms of its usefulness. By causing an aesthetic meaning, it allows emotional segments of greenery to emerge from them, synthesis of landscapes in the grounds of nature, in which there is great implicit beauty, from the randomness of their presence and in the definition that these forms determine, because they allow us to imagine the stories that are linked to each of those objects. The real circumstance of their disappearance is a wake-up call that, in Alex De la Torre’s brushes, shows the urgent need to recover them, to fight for their preservation, to return to the moments when oxygen was indispensable as the particle fundamental to the air we breathe. And that means the highest vital consideration
