More about Jiménez

Art Experts

Charles Dee Mitchell
Charles Dee Mitchell, writes in Art in America: "Jiménez's work creates a world where raucousness and pathos hold equal sway, where pointed social commentary coexists with a feel for the heroic dimension of everyday lives. His figurative style is a distinctive blend of sinewy Baroque forms and cartoonlike, Pop energy" (1999, p. 100).

Jane Livingston
Jane Livingston, Chief Curator of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC., compared Jiménez work to other Chicano artists who depict more urban subject matter: "Jimenez has invented a distinctive narrative voice, the visual language of the rural southwestern Chicano experience, the culture of the border crossing, the Texas dance hall, the Chicano cowboy" (1987, p. 105).
