Riverside Art Museum Announces Julie Torres. Close Encounters

the Riverside Art Museum presents Julie Torres. Close Encounters an exhibition on view January 5th, 2012 – April 5th, 2012. Opening: January 5th, 2012 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.

Torres’ works are visually potent, portable exercises in color and composition, and of the psychologically-charged underpinnings that they explore. The works on view at RAM can be divided into two groups: composite works, known as her “puzzle paintings,” which consist of grids of individual works on paper that serve both as their own works and inform parts of the larger whole, and individual works on paper. Torres’ unbridled experimentation and expression conjures relations to Modernist artists Philip Guston and Eva Hesse’s lesser known works on paper, while achieving a freshness that still relates to contemporary movements. Torres says of her artistic process:

“I like to explore the area between what’s private and what’s exposed. I enjoy paintings that are secretive and a little unclear. I try to never think when I’m painting because, if I do, I’ll ruin it.” – Julie Torres
