Ready to Hang
This acrylic on canvas work has solid blocks of rectangular and trapezoid shapes in varying colors move around, overlapping, bumping, maybe "dancing" or "conversing" with each other within a solid background. The influences here come from Constructivism, Cubism, Suprematism and Minimalism.
Titled, Signed and dated on the reverse.
The background color wraps around the entire canvas so the work is ready to hang as is.
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.
