Introducing: Arthur Timothy + Juan Miguel Quiñones
Continuing Ronchini’s long tradition of introducing pioneering artists to the London audience, we are proud to introduce both Arthur Timothy and Juan Miguel Quiñones.
Arthur Timothy is an architect and painter whose works depict close family members and autobiographical events, specifically in Accra, Ghana where the artist was born, and Sierra Leone, where he lived until the age of 9. The paintings are inspired by small black and white family photographs and are imbued with vibrant colour, added from his memory and imagination, which update and bring life to the original imagery.
Spanish sculptor Juan Miguel Quiñones was drawn to stone masonry and marble work from an early age, influenced by the quaries near his home town. Inspired by Pop Art, he creates sculptures of everyday popular items such as ice-cream, skateboards and spray paint cans using highly polished coloured stones, marble and resin. His works create a sense of merriment, playing with scale and materials; objects appear to be functional but on closer inspection are masterfully created intricate and luxurious objects de art.
