Juan Luis Jardí: Solo Show
January 6 - January 27, 2018
A mix of magic realism with certain influences of Pop Art and surrealism, Jardi's figures and themes illustrate the contrast is our lives and the doubts we are faced with as humans. He strives for his work to provoke feelings: nostalgia, melancholy, loneliness and a sense of uneasiness as well as feelings of euphoria and calm. Jardi's paintings offer a vintage perspective much like a trip into the past .
"Always both disquieting and attractive , the work of J.L. Jardí possesses an intense inner force; able to create a very special atmosphere, born of silence of technique, of space, of the absence of the figure even though it is often present. His characters are spectators who contemplate, while absorbed in thought, the reality that Jardí depicts. Stillness, space and the unknown. Perhaps what Jardí is painting is the future, what will happen; he creates a scene and poses a question. What path will events take ? Diverse possibilities are offered, but fate alone will decide. For now, we have the work´s inner power, always well wrought from a technical point of view." - Joan S. LLop, Critic of Art
