Nuria Torres (b. 1976) is a Spanish artist born in Barcelona. She uses marble and porcelain as her ‘language’ and finds marble solemn, but flexible, as it allows her to give a sort of ‘second skin’ to the matter. Porcelain, on the other hand, is versatile and fresh, enabling play with decorative elements. Torres attempts to reinterpret the classicism in her sculptures by adding little touches of reality, emphasising the style and traditional techniques that can be reviewed to capture contemporary aesthetics.
During 2012-14 Torres was a resident sculptor in the studio of Fabrizio Carrar Lorenzani in Italy. In 2014-16 she studied under sculptors Manuela Rivero and Mariano Andres Vilella in Barcelona.
