Juan Luis Quintana Prints
Juan Luis Quintana, a painter with a long career of exhibits in places ranging from Belgium to America. The exhibit titled �Anthropomorphic Landscapes� reflects the artist�s search for form using his own distinct palette and abstract style which hints at the diverse lands which have inspired his work. These places range from Zanzibar, Uyuni, Riga, and Santa Fe, New Mexico but Quintana never forgets his native Catalonia. His sophisticated use of color transmits a sense of peace and suggests another reality just out of our reach. In his work Quintana creates a transcendental world of objects with deep meaning like in his series of totems. The beauty of his world of recognizable objects and habitats goes beyond functionality to touch us in a deeper way. His own personal vision translates easily to universal archetypes. The visitor to the exhibition can enjoy the painting

Artist's Statement:
Anthropomorphic Landscapes.As its name states "Anthropomorphic Landscapes" is a pictorical subject matter that represents dwellings, customs, and objects of human beings in the world.The art of Juan Luis Quintana represents a world of shapes that comes from abstract ideas; these are transformed and materialized in recognizable forms which retain some measure of ambiguity.Paintings like Reliquiario, Genetic colapses, Totems, Ceramics, Dwelling, Eclipse, or Singor transmit cultural archetypes.The artist is interested in looking at these new archetypes through outlines and shapes in the background which define the painted object.The color suggests inner spaces and soft tones. Colors are taken from nature and consequently transmit calm and relaxation.The artwork of this painter transmits knowledge and beauty at the same time. The essential root of these paintings comes from an interpretation of the world as an ideal.This series of paintings represents the beauty of objects that humans can design and build for material purposes. However, the topic of anthropomorphic landscapes is related to human environment as well. The inner world connected with the outside and the beauty of nature affects the nature of humans beings. We live surrounded by nature and we produce, construct, and create what we need to live. When an object transmits beauty it is more than an object and this is how ancient objects can exist beyond the material world of what they were made for, because then they can also transmit something else.
