I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature. — Edvard Munch, 1892
Torres’ work recalls elements from Munch’s series of paintings and pastels, “Der Schrei der Natur” (“The Scream of Nature”). In his designs, Torres expresses key themes from “The Scream” series using the materials familiar to his trade.
