¨The Colors of Jazz¨, is Carlos Puyol’s first solo exhibition in the Netherlands. On Friday, March 10th, 20.00 hrs. the show opens in presence of the artist. The exhibition will continue until the 7th of May at the Oranjeplein 203 in Maastricht.
As very well stated by Emile Hollman in his introduction of the catalogue fort his exhibition: 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.
Carlos Puyol is an Argentinian artist, living and working since 2002 in Barcelona. He is represented by Susan Eley Fine Art in New York, in Stockholm and now also in Maastricht by PontArte.
Together with the exhibition we will publish a catalogue of Puyol’s latest works. The Dutch art critic Emile Hollman has written the introduction text after visiting Puyol in his studio in Barcelona. He has really captured the work and person in his text.
This autumn the work will be shown at Susan Eley Fine Art in New York.
PontArte represents a selective number of contemporary artists. They range from emerging talent to more established artists, who each have their own distinct style and story. Our way of working with them is characterized by long-term personal relationships. We have contact on an almost daily basis and visit all of them frequently. This makes not only that we know all their stories and motivations first hand, but also that we always know what they are working on, as well as have first access to new works.
We believe in art that is timeless, personal and unique (www.pontarte.com)
