Ready to Hang
This is one of a series of acrylic on canvas paintings, each 12" X 12", painted simultaneously in November 2015. Although all of them are "abstract", I purposely tried to make them as different from each other as possible. I worked within the confines of hard edge, reductive, color, form, rhythm, pattern and figure ground relationships. Influences include Gene Davis, Kandinsky, Mondrian, Barnett Newman and Ellsworth Kelly. The colors wraps around the edges or are white, so there is no need for framing. Ready to hang as is. Would look great as a complete group together, but are sold individually.
If you are interested in all six, make an offer. Each one 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.
