Juan Raul Hoyos


An important and decisive aspect of my career is that almost unintentionally, I have fused photographic images into painting, using mix media.

Despite printing repeatedly using silk screen techniques, I have not produced numbered series or editions.  My paintings and installations are composed by individual modules, which joined on a single surface, establish their own resonance.

They are real images of the city, urban landscapes of the place where I find myself.  They act as a frame, as ongoing reflections between the domestic and the urban, as a sort of approach to the things which surround me. 

Like a zoom lens or a movie camera, my vision generally moves between the general to the particular -and vice versa- with neither a logical nor a consecutive chronology. At times, this technique unleashes a fairly meticulous approach to the objects.   On other instances, the lens opens and I pause to observe the architecture of things.

In short, my work is a constant exploration of the surrounding living City.
