CONSTRUCTED is a new exhibition curated by Saatchi Art curator, Victoria Kennedy. On view in Santa Monica, the exhibition presents recent works by thirteen emerging artists, including Raül de la Torre, among others. These thirteen Los Angeles-based artists defy the traditional boundaries of their mediums and challenge the physicality of their artistic practice. Working in a variety of materials, from fabric to neon to metal, each artist shares an interest in exploring the work of art as a carefully constructed object.
