Joaquín Boz creates earthy-colored abstract paintings that rely on his physical energy, careful scrutiny and patient refinement. He spreads, scrapes, and pushes oil paints across wood panels with his hands, creating various textures and gestures that leave behind a record of his physical presence. He uses an array of undulating loops, staccato scratches, and calligraphic marks to flirt with identifiable forms without allowing them to coalesce into recognizable images. When he is not applying paint, he is wiping it away. He is equally comfortable making works as large as 10 x 30 feet and others as small as 11 x 13 inches. Regardless of size, the paintings are composed of anti-heroic gestures that celebrate the potential of touch and the humble, earthbound nature of material things.
