NURIA TORRES

Nuria Torres

Nuria Torres is a Spanish artist born in Barcelona, 1976. During 2012-2014 Torres was a resident sculptor in Italy, learning from Fabrizio Carrar Lorenzani and in 2014 – 2016, she studied under sculptors Manuela Rivero and Mariano Andres Vilella in Barcelona.

Torres has had several exhibitions in Barcelona and took part at the Collective Exhibition Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale 2015 in South Korea. She won the first prize at the Collective Exhibition XXI Ceramic Competition “City of Valladolid” VIII International Meeting in 2017.

Nuria uses marble and porcelain as her language, she carries out her sculptural proposals with these two materials. Marble is solemn but flexible, it allows her to give a sort of “second skin” to the matter, while the porcelain is versatile and fresh it allows her to play with decorative elements.

She tries to reinterpret the classicism in her sculptures by adding little touches of reality that is placed by the master in there, emphasising that style and traditional techniques can be reviewed to capture contemporary aesthetics.
