Re: “Art Talk: Borderlandia Glass Art

Be introduced to the compelling glass artwork by brothers Einar and Jamex de la Torre. Their unique, politically driven work combining glass, found objects and other material is on display at the Tucson Museum of Art between February and June 2011. The de la Torres celebrate the unique symbols and images of mestizaje (racial and cultural mixing) and the political ideology of modern national identity, unity, and social progress. What makes their work so compelling on a formal level is the vibrancy of their forms, the explosive visual impact of their color combination, and the seductive nature of the shiny, slick surface of glass. Yet equally riveting in their beautifully expressive works is their message. At once humorous and confrontational, their satirical sculptures and installations expose stereotyping, historic revisionism, and a popular culture obsessed with consumerism. !Borderlandia: The Message Behind the Glass!
