The work of Luís Torres explores issues relating to feelings, wishes, experiences of different societies and their forms of expression.
Heal is a work about human beings. When nature meets spirituality and turns feelings into hard realities that need to be repaired, ended and renewed. Like in an alchemist formula, always aiming to find something that no one knows if exists to cure them.
