Catalogue Note

"Painting and poetry, for Coronel, serve as self-expression. The relationship between this artist and painting is...amorous in the sense that he recognizes the existence of the work as an autonomous reality. The work would not exist without Coronel, but without the work, Coronel would not exist. The work gives him (gives us) a new existence. If the spectator seeks to delve into the painting of Coronel, they must reproduce this relationship of constant creation. The secret of a work resides as much in the work itself as in the spectator’s mind."
