Edith Torres Avendano
Edith has been a professional artist for over 22 years including experiences in the national and international field of fine arts. She discovered her passion for art at an early age, mainly in drawing and painting. She utilizes a variety of mediums (i.e. collage, encaustics, acrylic, oil, ink and watercolor), in which she represents her spiritual process, expressing her feelings and sentiments that are the source of her inspiration, characterized in a non-figurative format. The predominating aspects of her art are color, stains, drippings, dribbles and symbols which she uses intuitively.

Edith states that her works of art have been inspired by a profound impression that she experienced, at an early age, when she visited and was marveled by the natural beauty of God’s creation: "El río de los Cinco colores" or "el río que se escapó del paraíso” (the river of five colors or the river that escaped from paradise), in Colombia. This natural work of art creates a diversity of colors and appears full of light and movement, conveying a sense of peace and tranquility. It is for this reason that she presents her work of art titled "El Rio de Cinco Colores" (the river of five colors) inviting the spectators, to experience the sensations of observing and identifying the secrets hidden within nature.

The works represented here are characterized by expressionism, abstract and blotchy stains placed in a space, which refer to forms; while, using techniques such as juxtaposition, overlapping and translucency. We may also observe strong flowing strokes and lack of restriction in her colors and forms that merge into strong movements. She describes it as feeling as if she were "peeping into" the process of the creation of the world.

Edith's works of art may be found and seen in private collections in the United States, Spain, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Switzerland and Sweden.

Edith has a Bachelor of Fine Arts with concentration in painting from Escuela de Artes Plásticas (School of Fine Arts) San Juan, Puerto Rico and a Master's Degree in Education with concentration in Museology from Caribbean University, Bayamón, and Puerto Rico
