AN INEXACT GEOMETRY
Jaime franco splashes his intuition onto the canvas in the quest for expression and knowledge. In his work there is no abstraction or metaphor to reflect reality: it is simply a piece of evidence of an exercise in painting, of reflections and sensations which the work itself produces as it takes shape. His work concentrates on the traditional problems of painting in questions of color, scale, surface and pigment; the main intention is to produce self-sufficient objects which can communicate notions, doubts and proposals. Although there is an emphasis on freestyle composition, there is a hint of underlying geometry, his work is also rich in sensations and cadences, with suggestive and particular use of color and a surprising smoothness that contradicts the chromatic indications of the surface which at first sight seems irregular.
