Jacinto Moros, Maru Quinonero, and Jason Trotter each share a strong interest in playful shapes, dynamic form, and vivid color. Distinguished by their unique backgrounds, specialized training, and distinct use of material, these works interact effortlessly to showcase high energy and expressive emotion. Moros’ wooden structures dance alongside the delicate hand of Quiñonero’s pastels and Trotter’s razor sharp compositions.
Intersect Palm Springs is a boutique fair that brings together a dynamic mix of modern and contemporary art, and is activated by timely and original programming. The fair has traditionally occurred in conjunction with Modernism Week at the Palm Springs Convention Center, and presents post-war and contemporary art. Formerly known as Art Palm Springs, it has been running since 2012.
Jacinto Moros was born in 1959 in Cetina, Zaragoza, Spain and is best known for his innovative use of the sculpture medium. By creating friction between his chosen material and their resulting forms, Moros develops a rhythmic weightlessness in space, as seen through his wood work and embossed monochromatic reliefs. The artist has been exhibited internationally, including the New Museum in New York City, the Sculpture Center, and the Smithsonian Institute, among others. Moros is also found in many private collections worldwide. He currently lives and works in Madrid, Spain.
Maru Quiñonero’s passion for volumes, shapes, textures, colors, and different materials inspire her to define compositions that visualize her own creative universe. Her Color and Vacuum series has been in the development stage since 2017 and focuses on creating a conversation between color and emptiness with a recent extensive study of colors– blue in particular. Quiñonero is a self taught artist who breaks conventional boundaries through her own capacity to imagine and express what she feels inside. She is based in Madrid, Spain.
Jason Trotter is an American artist known for his bold geometric abstracts rendered in acrylics. The Los Angeles based painter explores contrast and balance using a hard-edge technique that produces sharp lines with abrupt transitions between color fields. His process requires him to work on a flat surface to tape off shapes, and then build up multiple layers of paint with a brush before applying the final coat with a palette knife for ample texture. He focuses on triptychs that are assembled and framed as one piece. This multi-panel approach allows for a more dynamic effect than the traditional compilation.While Trotter’s colors are chosen intuitively, his compositions are inspired by lines and forms observed in daily life with the intention of evoking an instinctual, physical reaction from observers rather than interpretive analysis.
