“The mysterious shadows of Rembrandt and the opalescent flesh of Vermeer combine in Enrique Toribio’s portraits of pain and loneliness played out on the naked male body.
‘In the pictures of ‘Knots’ the bodies intertwine while asking for help or simply protecting themselves from the shadows. The ‘Knots’ are an aesthetic exercise to bare the almost physical pain caused by loneliness, rejection and neglect. They are a naked plea, anonymous in most cases (i.e. faceless), to escape the shadow or vacuum which wraps the individual.” – Enrique Toribio
