Ready to Hang
Collage inspired by the Russian artist Kasimir Malevich who developed and named his abstract paintings using geometric lines, squares, circles and rectangles Suprematism. This was his reaction against the realist works that were being created around 1913 in Russia. His theories on abstract art was one of the many new art movements surfacing in France, Spain, Italy and Germany from 1908 to the 1920's which inclluded Cubism, Futurism, Dada, DeStijl and Constructivism. In this collage I used cut colored paper, painted paper and marker glued onto a white heavy stock background. The work is shipped framed. The artwork is 22 x 28. With the frame the size is 24 x 30 x 3/4 inch depth. The white wood frame with plexi glass adds a extra inch all around giving the work a nice finished look and ready to hang. The work is titled, signed and dated on the rear.
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.
