Joan Ávila's canvases are of spontaneous execution but they underly in them an internal order that gives coherence to the apparent chaos. We feel that canvas have been realized in an impulsive way in order to point out the predominance of broken lines, lines that have a strong power of suggestion. More than narrating situations, they suggest atmospheres.
Sometimes his language tends to look like comics; sometimes his formal schema derives towards a surreal informalism, playing with scales and collage. In the portraits of his friends as well as in the reinvented landscapes, Avila has put his mark, a gesture or an image that you keep in mind.
