Nicole Longnecker Gallery announces an exhibit for Latino Art Now!, the San Diego-based glass artists Einar and Jamex de la Torre. The exhibit opens Saturday, April 6, 2019 with an artist’s reception from 5pm – 8pm and runs through May 11, 2019. SYNOPSIS: Nicole Longnecker Gallery announces an exhibit for Latino Art Now!, the San Diego-based glass artists Einar and Jamex de la Torre. Exploring cultural iconography, Einar and Jamex de la Torre blend traditional Mexican Folk Art imagery with tongue-in-cheek cultural commentary. Using unconventional glass working techniques, the brothers force a reassessment of a material often considered purely decorative. High and low culture, the sacred and the profane, the esoteric and the pop collide in their works. “I’m delighted to present Einar and Jamex de la Torre to Houston during Latin Art Now!,” said gallery owner Nicole Longnecker. “They have spent a lifetime collaborating on award winning art. Their provocative flair and unique construction techniques push the boundaries of contemporary art.” [Organizer's description]
