Alessandra Torres's art deals with the relationship between the object and the body and the body's experience of the world. There's a really satisfying physicality and sense of exploration in all her work. Alessandra Torres received her Bachelor of Fine Art from MICA and her Master of Fine Art from Virginia Commonwealth University. Torres is now a sculpture instructor here at MICA. I came across her work last year after she gave me a tour of the sculpture department and have been interested in her perception of the body and the world since then. All her works involve sculpture with objects and sculpture with her body.
