Ready to Hang
Two separate 8" X 10" canvases attached together with metal brackets and screws on the reverse. This is a pure grid based composition created intuitively with precision, ambiguity and organization. Painted layer by layer, editing, improvising and reducing the painting to it's essence. Painting in and of itself. The paint wraps around all the edges so it is ready to hang as is. Titled, signed and dated on the reverse.
Juan Jose Hoyos Quiles was born in Brooklyn, New York and attended The School of Visual Arts, NYC from 1979 to 1982 where he studied under Elizabeth Murray, Keith Sonnier, Raphael Ferrer, Lucio Pozzi and Nachume Miller among others. Unfortunately art school does not teach you how to make money from fine art making. Therefore forced to make a living in the big city, Juan worked for several decades in business management for several large companies in law, accounting and telecommunications. Throughout this period Juan kept abreast of the art world by going to galleries and museums and making art in his spare time. Finally freed from money constraints in 2011 with early retirement, he is now dedicated to painting full time.
