Jovan Karlo Villalba — Paint Works

August 1, 2011

My interest is in the possibilities of the imagination.

Through my art, I aim to create a gratifying and refreshing experience by stimulating contemplation and escapism in a viewer. I like to think of my paintings as puzzle segments that provide a glimpse of pictorial worlds that are inviting and free to inhabit. Through the use of abstraction, and the juxtaposition of curious references, I assign unconventional roles to familiar imagery. The whimsical reconstructions describe settings that emanate meaning over time, resulting in work that is simultaneously deliberate and vague.

A viewer may eventually find that my art, while commenting on current social and environmental issues, reveals how I see the world around me – an interconnected place, constantly shifting between the familiar and unfamiliar.
