Experimentation with different materials, textures, and techniques in each of his paintings has been a point of discovery and a major part of Raul de la Torre’s artwork. In his Fils I Colors series of works, he attempts to find the third dimension through the use of different materials. Initially, he removed paint from the artistic equation by slicing the works, combining canvas and paper with selected materials. Gradually, the slicing gained more importance. Embroidery provides another element as it creates thick shadows with organic shapes. When combined with light, these shapes offer different views of the work to various observers.
This unique 30 inches tall by 48 inches wide artwork is created with thickly layered acrylic paint on paper. This original work on paper is not framed. It is signed by the artist on the front. Convenient local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable U.S. and global shipping are available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
The interaction between the artist, gravity, and the paint is important for the final result. The technique attempts to eliminate the absolute imprint of the artist’s hand. This permits the paint to be a major architect of the final result, giving it a life of its own. It results in infinite and timeless color combinations. In many cases, the different layers of color each represent a temporary state of mind, time, and even places and people.

Raul de la Torre was born in Barcelona in 1964 and went on to attend Massana Art School there. Experimentation with different materials, textures, and techniques in each of his paintings has been a point of discovery and a major part of his work. In his Fils I Colors series he finds the third dimension through the use of different materials.
Initially, he removed paint from his artistic process by slicing his works, and combining canvas and paper with other selected materials. Gradually the slicing gained more importance and became a reflection of his increased desire to add more dimension. Embroidery provides another layer as it creates thick shadows with organic shapes. De la Torre makes horizontal cuts on the canvas or paper and covers these open areas using color matching cotton thread.
The major motivation for the idea behind his series, CIUTATS (cities), was the artist’s city, Barcelona, and it's particular infrastructure and architecture which are unique among the cities of the world and which are easily recognizable. His personal attraction to the great cities of the world and the urban life was a true incentive. In this series he portrays the different aspects of the cities as a human creation with their different levels of physical and social existence.
