The work of Joncquil is hard to describe. It depicts situations and characteristics from the world we know, but its effect tends to be alienating than rather familiar. He himself says about his paintings: "Something extraordinary usually happens outside our field of vision. I am amazed at the reality we hardly register and I tell an everyday story. I paint the moment between question and answer. I regard the subjects as a collection of surfaces, planes, lines, colors and angles that together assume a recognizable form and give meaning. I register and reconsider their value and necessity, (re) construct those areas of light and darkness in an attempt to represent the moment where shapes get their contents". The paintings look like the physical result of a search for everyday situations that have the ability to reveal a universal truth. A way to make the invisible visible and the daily eternal. The end result is not an accomplished fact, but leaves the interpretation to the viewer. The search is expressed not only in the choice of subjects, but also in the choice of technology. From an early age, the artist was inspired by photography, in particular by the chemical processes in the dark room. The influence of this is still evident in the almost cinematic light that hangs over the paintings. This convergence of color spectra seems to form a self-contained palette that strengthens the oscillation of form and meaning in the paintings. Just as many painters embraced photography at the beginning of the 20th century in an attempt to capture reality, to duplicate and to equal it, Joncquil chooses painting for the truth in himself and with his paintings to reveal the reality in us. explain.
