About Einar and Jamex de la Torre

In their mixed-media sculptures, brothers Einar and Jamex de la Torre blend glass-blowing techniques with found objects such as antique printed material, barbeque grills, metal racks, leather, and small objects taken from dollar stores during their travels. Their work draws from traditional Mexican folk art, pop-cultural and religious imagery, and mythology to create works that offer commentary on contemporary Mexican life and the art world itself. The brothers’ collaborative practice embodies the fusion of indigenous and Spanish cultural heritage that makes up contemporary Mexican society, particularly in the confrontation between different religious imagery.
