WINTER PARK, FLA.- The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College announced the opening of De La Torre Brothers: Rococolab, on view to the public from January 17 – May 12, 2019. 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.

Collaborating artists-brothers Einar and Jamex de la Torre— born in Guadalajara, México—live and work in Ensenada, México and San Diego, California. Their dynamic, complex, and baroque-inspired sculptures and lenticulars are a product of a bi-cultural existence, reflecting their collaborative and hybrid approach to art-making. Both artists studied glass formally and 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, such as Quinceañera Milenial. Their works have been exhibited internationally and domestically, and are included 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.

Rococolab is the De La Torre Brothers' first solo museum exhibition in Florida. Organized by Cornell Fine Arts Museum Curator Gisela Carbonell, the presentation of their work in the context of our teaching mission invites a nuanced reading of each object and a consideration of some of the most pressing issues in contemporary culture. “This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on historical events; the De La Torre Brothers excel at making palpable the connections between the past and our experience of the present. Their masterful handling of various techniques allows them to address issues in a visual language to which contemporary viewers can relate. We look forward to engaging our visitors in meaningful dialogues in the context of this exhibition,” states Carbonell. The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated booklet available in the museum store, which includes an introduction and an interview with the De La Torre Brothers. The booklet and all didactic material in the exhibition is available in English and Spanish.
