about José Juan Gimeno

Valencia, 1961

Studies in Fine Arts from the Faculty of San Carlos in Valencia. The painter takes the windows as the main motif of his artworks offering the most daily vision of the city, in his plastic exercise presents a contemporary and timeless look that runs between the public and the private. He investigates the holistic change of the city. Urban anthropology and the perspectives of urbanism are the elements that lead to a plastic interpretation of the form and spaces of the metropolis.

Gimeno's artworks are an observational practice that allows him to configure an aesthetic-anthropological discourse on social life, speaking of private and architectural spaces. With mixed media personifies facades and windows, exposing themselves to a reflection on their own loneliness and their coexistence with time, these facades look directly at the viewer, leading them towards their own introspection. Jose Juan has participated in several groups and solo exhibitions, including the ""Límite de la intimidad"" with the La Colectiva Gallery, ""Con-Vivencias"" with the Alba Cabrera Gallery and ""Cromatismos y Expresiones"" with Karton Gallery.

about the artist's works

His work aims to find and discover intimate spaces, rationalizing them in a pictorial language. This work is made up of lines, colour fields, linear structures, frames etc to take the observer to explore the composition, the work tries to confront the viewer with something every day and in turn uncertain. The composition is resolved through the interpretation of an architectural structure, held on a vertically structured dummy background, creating a sense of depth, dynamism and uncertainty, accentuated by an almost central point of attention, the white window. The way to approach the work technically is through the acrylic painting on board and the image printed on the methacrylate. Methacrylate is secured by a frame and it is attached to the frame. The mixture of different techniques painting, printed image, screen printing, are the cause of a technological present where research is part of his work.
