I think I painted my first yarn painting eight years ago, and have made three or four since, so there is a sense of going back to something familiar. And since I paint them infrequently, I always feel like I have to rediscover how to do it, to some degree. Like any subject, I try to find ways to express these things in a way that is sympathetic to my manner of working and learn a bit from each one to the next.” Quintana has been exploring dual imagery and parrallel spaces, which is why he’s incorporated transparent hands in his untitled work for the show. “The viewer may interpert the shadow hands as a possible invader towards the female character, but may also be a thing conjured up by the subject,” he says. 12 x 12 in 12 will be on view throughout the month of December.
