Understanding the frenzy of the work of Einar and Jamex de la Torre is like trying to navigate the running of the bulls in Spain on a tricycle. The chaos coming at you assaults your senses from all sides. Which way to turn? From the baroque sculptural glass and mixed media figures to the multi-dimensional lenticular light box wall pieces, one feels a sense of high stimulation and sensory overload. There is a joyous abandon that accompanies experiencing the work, as well as charm and a folksy narrative that keep the viewer engaged. Tequila tasting sponsored by Gramps.
