Juan Cristobal Pinochet Araya

There is Still So Much To Do!

On Exhibit

“I became an artist without being aware of it,” Juan Cristobal Pinochet Araya says. Art was such a great part of his life in Québec City. He arrived there from Chile at an early age. His mother was a painter and he got interested in art because he saw her working in her studio and he learned to stay quiet just watching her work because he was so fascinated. Having his mother’s studio at home and seeing her paint there, the brushes in jars and the tables and drawers full of tubes, was just so natural. Even as a youngster he was careful not to touch things because they could be covered in fresh paint. The result is that today, many years later, during his demonstrations, he could be wearing a white shirt and a good jacket and stay pristine.

Contemporary realism

“Painting is my vocation and my avocation. It is a love of my life. It has never really been work to me. It is my most sincere pleasure and challenge, a series of puzzles to solve. I believe that there are no Painting Police and I can experiment, improvise and create and, no matter the result, it is the process that really counts, so I am always and forever, very, very fine. I also believe there are no bad paintings: they are just not yet finished.” – Valerie Kent
