CK Contemporary is pleased to present new works by Mexican artist Gustavo Torres. The exhibition is open to public from 14 July to 14 August, Monday to Sunday from 10am -5pm.

The visual imagery of Gustavo Torres reflects a deep, quiet spirit of antiquity. His textured finger work and carefully chosen patinas convey a worn, earthy presence, while his forms capture intimate gestures such as a mother’s touch, a distant gaze or a lover’s caress. The power of his art is in its simplicity, tranquility and connection to life and nature, and he maintains that “art without spirit is nothing”. Striving for a sense of “spiritual balance”, each piece begins with a fragment of his own past. As he explains, “The form is just the beginning. The rest is left to each person’s connection as they add their own experience and spirit”. In a style that is both ancient and modern, with detailed rough texture that parallels historic artifacts, combined with the elegant, elongated forms of modernist sculpture, Torres is able to communicate the very essence of human nature.

Artist ( Description ): 

Gustave Torres was born in Guadalajara, Mexico where he began sculpting and training with accomplished artists such as Luis Larios at a very young age. After receiving his Bachelors of Fine Art at the University of Guadalajara in 1991, Torres left Mexico to pursue a career in the United States. He currently lives and works in Northern California. 

Torres’ style is both ancient and modern, with detailed rough texture that parallels historic artifacts, combined with the elegant, elongated forms of modernist sculpture. He strives to create a “spiritual balance” in his art and maintains that “art without spirit is nothing”. His driving desire is to connect his work to others on a spiritual level, and each piece begins with a fragment of his own past. As he explains, “The form is just the beginning. The rest is left to each person’s connection as they add their own experience and spirit”.
