Juan Jose Hoyos Quiles

Juan is an abstract geometric hard-edge painter. His paintings are fueled by his love of abstraction. The practice of making them involves experimenting with many schools of art and diverse art movements from the early 1900s to the present. His work has been evolving and transforming over a number of years and has fluctuated back and forth among different ideas, all of them in the abstract model. During his studies with Italian master Lucio Pozzi, Juan learned not to adhere to a "recognizable style" and instead depend on his intuition and shift back and forth within different parameters. Sometimes he works in pairs but has also worked in series as in the Concrete Paintings. He favors flat blocks of color, straight lines, hard edges, the grid, patterns, color juxtaposition, geometry, and patterns. The work is distilled, austere and elegant. It does not refer to anything in nature, nor is it gestural or based on any mathematical or scientific principles.
