Mr. Torrey, having a background in illustration and art direction, turned to painting several years ago, mastering the art of "plein air", a style which opens the landscape up to the free impression of the artist outside the studio. His current exhibit includes truly demonstrates his eye for design and color. It includes a series of paintings on both Los Angeles landmarks, and of his vision of Africa, depicted by his recent trip to Kenya.

The paintings will be on exhibit in the Library from September 15th to October 19th, 1999.

Torrey at Resident Artist Reception

Dana Torrey, who introduced his latest series of paintings at Mayor Richard Riordan's house, will be the guest of honor at the Resident Artist Reception on October 14 at 5:30 p.m. in the library.

"Plein air is all about color," explained Torrey. "I splash my canvases with color-cyan, yellow, magenta, and from there work out the overall tone I'm looking for." Torrey looked all over Los Angeles for two months for the best structural images. "I wanted to combine the techniques of light, shade, haze and the color system that would work. I then took photographs of the landscapes and architectural shapes and combined them with sketches in my notebooks to plan out my paintings."

Complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
