1959

Oil on board

24.77 x 38.1 cm (9 3/4 x 15 in)

Quick Overview

Even when confined to a small surface, Jose Joya’s shapes still have a command to draw the eye towards themselves. As shaded oils are applied to each other, Joya takes a different pivot from the usual modern transparent work, each layer so bold, finding opaqueness not through an outsourced light but through its own structure. Through this, there is a juxtaposition of both the commanding yet subtle, wherein each colored layer partakes in both, and not wholly of the other.
