Joncquil

About

Joncquil (1973, The Netherlands) creates enigmatic, fragmentary paintings that resemble hallucinations, dreams or memories. His work combines figurative and abstract images that seem to be in a state of flux, suggesting a momentary arrest of an ongoing process. Even when depicting familiar imagery such as animals or clowns, his paintings disconcert and disorient the viewer. Folly and magic touch upon deeply-rooted needs in human societies. Clowns, comical performers who entertain by their outlandish behaviour, can produce anxiety or fear just as easily as they can trigger laughter. Displaced from the circus or children's party to the isolation of the woods at night, the figure of a clown becomes menacing.
