“Missing Piece”

Vivian Torres


My work is informed by concepts involving beauty and sensuality as it pertains to the female body and the environments that surround me. Ambiguity in expression and harmonious color palettes are some of the formal techniques I use in order to convey deep emotion in my compositions. I reference fabrics, my body, and landscapes I have experienced to discover similar shapes and color relationships within the three ideas. I have a deep fascination with the natural fluidity found in each, yet appreciate and acknowledge the constant challenge of balancing these vastly different ideas in a single composition.
