Info

 Born in Toronto, Canada, Winston Torr grew up in an Chinese-American household in Los Angeles, California, which will always remain his home. After receiving a BFA from California Polytechnic State University in Pomona in 2000, he decided to take that same amount of years it took to achieve the diploma towards his practice, and thus began to educate himself outside the school system. After a near-death experience in 2003, Torr craved a different cultural experience in search of identity. The path led him to Berlin, Germany – a place where all kinds of biographies mix and mingle, and where art is at its most diverse. The creative capital of Europe did not fail in its effect on Torr: His artistic repertoire soon began to broaden and flourish.

Statement from the Artist.

Recently I have been diagnosed with keratitis sicca, an eye disease caused by premature excessive dry eyes and tearing of the cornea. My eyes burn, blurs, and I become very dizzy when in contact with strong light, reshaping the way I see color and the world around me. I have to wear sunglasses everywhere.

My latest projects journey into my new vision, experiences, and senses. Muted, calm, and eerie.

Viewers should not feel but also view the anxiety through my eyes by questioning their own reality from a distant and extreme closeup.
