De La Torre Brothers

Rococolab

Collaborating artists-brothers Einar and Jamex de la Torre were born in Guadalajara, México. They live and work in Ensenada, México and San Diego, California and their dynamic, complex, and baroque-inspired sculptures and lenticulars are a product of a bi-cultural existence.

Rococolab features a selection of works that bring together art historical imagery, religious symbolism, and pop culture in unexpected dialogue. This grouping of intricate images and objects articulates social commentary  through humor and unlikely juxtapositions. Their collaborative and hybrid approach to art making is revealed in works like Quinceañera Milenial, depicted here.

The artists studied glass formally, and both owned and operated a flame-worked glass figure business from 1981 to 1997. Known for their-2-D and 3-D glass works, the artists have more recently been exploring the potential of lenticulars. Their works have been exhibited internationally. In the U.S., their work can be found in the following public collections: Arkansas Arts Center Museum, ASU Art Museum, Henry Art Gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and the Tucson Museum of Art.
