about

Jeankarlos Cruz conducts a studio practice

That constructs an abstract vocabulary

To investigate and

communicate the essence in

The realm of environment structures both

Physical and intangible.

 

Abstraction as language

Dissolves immediate associations and meanings

Perceived by

Traditional figurative representation of the real. 

 

The practice of forming, finding,

deconstructing the image

Requires constant agitation and

Manipulation of materials over the surface.

Through time

Layer upon Layer of materials and actions

Search to capture a materialistic image.

 

Only the painting itself,

after being exhausted,

Concludes the act.

Collapsing several sections of time

Into the one final presentation.

 

The process opens the way to

Communicate meanings in the themes

we could so humanistically present

persistently

over the course of History:

Human nature, the cosmos, love variations, ancestry, cotidianism, social struggles,

and the placements of objects in between it all.
