HONYS TORRES - JOSE NAHARRO
“In the Pop-Art Context”
Oct 13 - Nov 4, 2023
Iconic imagery is the primary source in the research and visual production of the Venezuelan artist Honys Torres (Caracas, 1969), who has developed an extensive and fruitful body or work of an eclectic nature. Excelling as a painter, photographer, sculptor, and draftsman, Torres aesthetic approach is rooted in critical reflection whereby themes revolving around power, stereotypes, anarchy and the canons of beauty in contemporary society are questioned against a canvas of deeply-held assumptions.

The Aragonese artist José Luis Naharro grew up in an artistic environment: his father was a sculptor and artist, and his mother made handmade carpets. All of this influenced the artistic life of young Naharro, who already showed a great sensitivity in the art world. After completing a course at the School of Fine Arts in Zaragoza and once understanding the principles of art, it was said that this was just one way of seeing things, so he went in search of another way to view the same subjects. He continued to copy the great masters and to draw original or ancient sculptures.
