Skin and Soul

Skin and Soul

By painting nudes, Torrens uses the human body as a vehicle to convey emotion, while simultaneously continuing a long tradition found throughout art history. In a time of changing attitudes, Torrens says that for him, “[the body] is the essence of the human being, and it is timeless. When you put clothing on, you dat[e] the person [in time] and that, for me, is portraiture. I like that too, but it is not the main body of work. If I were trying to capture the physical elements of my models, I would probably choose photography instead of painting. My models are tools to express myself. Somehow, I always paint myself, as I suppose many artists do more or less.”
