Cuesta arriba, 1982
Uphill

33 x 41 cm, oil on canvas

                  A yellow cart drawn by an animal with neck bent by the effort and a figure, weak and humbled by the fatigue of moving steeply uphill. It could also be a coming home from work, like a humbled funeral.
                  In this scene, fitting of Russian expresisionism or Italian neo-realism, Torrent adds colour, the red shade of pain and open wounds of the earth. In he foreground the path is an uphill white line that informs us of the steepness of the hill and the path that follows it.
