The TOROSIETE Museum of Contemporary Art is proud to add Roneld Lores to our Museum and at the same time launch our Interactive Sculpture Gallery with his exhibition “The Children of Light, Water, and Clay.”
Roneld Lores is a sculptor and painter living in Boston, MA. He has been an active part of the artist community for over 20 years. Originally from Cuba, Mr. Lores moved to the United States at the age of eight and studied Fine Arts at New World School of the Arts and Florida International University, where he received a BFA in 1994 with a major in Ceramics & Sculpture. One of Mr. Lores areas of concentration is the female figure. Strongly rooted in a classical foundation, his sculpture’s and paintings, abstract and fragment the female figure to conform to his own aesthetics. His style is loose and dynamic with an evident grasp of realism. His work has been exhibited and is in private collections throughout the Americas and Europe.
“The female form is one of the earliest sources of artistic inspiration. I use the female form to explore our relationship with nature and to delve into the essence of our species; our endurance, our identity, our drive. My art is driven by a need to capture both the sensuality and the strength inherent in women. Over the course of my artistic trajectory I have explored this theme through stylized vessel forms and fertility effigies. These pieces explore our elemental roots and our reverence for life and nature, dating back to a time when we connected our immediate survival with our ability to live on in the next generation. Additionally there is a sensual undertone to my figures which explores the nature of how desire and attraction can evolve towards mutual reverence or devolve towards subversion and inequality. I do this by imparting my figures with both carnal and psychological elements that offer a balance between sensuality and power. Most recently my focus has turned towards an examination of our future as a species. My current sculptures, paintings, and poetry are part of a series titled The Children of Light, Water, and Clay which explores the likelihood that climate changes may eventually render the cost of civilization unsustainable and bring us full circle.” – Roneld Lores
We are excited to launch this exhibition of “The Children of Light, Water, and Clay” with a new Interactive Virtual Gallery technology that allows us to present 360 degree views at multiple zoom levels of his works in a true to scale environment.
