New Work: Juan Carlos Castellanos

Juan Carlos Castellanos

Artist Reception Thursday, April 21, 2011
CoCA Ballard Gallery
6413 Seaview Avenue NW, Seattle, Washington 98107

Cuban born Juan Carlos Castellanos paints quietly, privately and obsessively in Seattle. All of his paintings are the same size, all are on painted on the same paper with oil that may begin in many colors but always ends in faded hues of grey, beige and hints of yellow. The works are not titled. Neither is the show. He has no artist statement. Castellanos argues that poetry and mystery lie in saying nothing, in not knowing. He says "my work is not about definition; anything I have to say is said in the work".
