Raúl Díaz Reyes

Artist originally selected by Torrente, Virginia at 2010
This is a 2016 content update.


Raúl Díaz Reyes’ recent work breaks the frontiers between disciplines, taking us into a decisive contemporaneity, in which all languages drift away from the standard and invite us to knock into shape a panoramic look of our surroundings.


The union that is established with architecture, and the mash-up of materials, talks to us about cities in relationship with their inhabitants as dynamic systems in constant movement and alteration. This way, there are no dimensional limits, no technical laws: the photograph is contemplated as a sculpture, and the painting gets into it. The results of this reflection on the city as a place for interaction and change question exhibition models, alters codes, and generate new landscapes with multiple possibilities.
