Mi Tierra

A new ovoid form dominates his recent work, and these egg-like shapes bring to mind the basest of forms - amoebae or cells. They group together like some pseudo-scientific film of bacteria, moving always toward some central point. These forms were born of Jimenez's love of the pure, meditative gesture.

Each cell is made with one unerring movement of his hand, which he moves intuitively over the canvas, as though on a Ouija board. With his amoebic forms Jimenez has forged a new base material and a new aesthetic.
