“Jaime Gili’s paintings are as if someone had thrown a bomb into a Cruz-Diez”

Gili favours contained violence and the potency of repetition. His imagery is like commotion slowed to a halt and held up for our scrutiny.
Sally O’Reilly, exhibition catalogue of EXPANDER. October 2004. Royal Academy. London)

"Jaime Gili's work seems to be a meditation on the fact that, as Jean-François Lyotard pointed out repeatedly, a painting or a representation arrives "too early" or "too late." To paint about speed is to miss the point - literally. This impossibility and paradox seems to drive Gili's work; but we are left enigmatically with various insinuations about the consequences of speed and pace.”
David Ryan. Jerwood Space review, Art Papers, (May-June 2003)

“In opposition to what historical modernist painters did, developing towards a cleaner synthesis, I feel you are building a synthesis of your work retrospectively - in reverse. It would no longer be the case of “a bomb thrown into a Cruz-Diez” but an explosion that keeps occurring within your own work.”
Jesus Fuenmayor, exhibition catalogue, Periferico Caracas, 2006
