This work was first exhibited at PontArte during the solo show ¨the Color of Jazz¨ that took place from the 10th of March until the 7th of May 2017 in Maastricht.
As very well stated by Emile Hollman in his introduction of the catalogue for the exhibition The Color of Jazz: The paintings first find their form in drawings in the artist’s substantial, rectangular sketchbooks, and then become alive when the artist lets in the jazz and starts coloring, cleaning, stripping, blowing and erasing. Jazz in paint, yes, he can live by that metaphor, captured in his abstract still-lifes.
The work of Puyol is a force field of Color and lines which gives it a wonderful tension. The work is not about understanding, but about sensing.
