"Juan Carlos Bronstein paints pre-erotic nudes, contemplating the body as if through the eyes of a child on the verge of sexual maturity who knows no shame. The eroticism is pure and innocent, yet bears the stamp of mystery. Its beauty is attractive to the point of pain, peering into the innermost recesses of the exposed body.
At times, a tone of repressed agression flickers towards the paintings, but aesthetics always overcome morbidity, and the high quality of the line determines the bounds of the depiction, and contains the outcry of the erotic expression within its sphere. Like a wise child, protected from the ills of adolescence and falsely considered judgment, Juan Carlos preserves the wonder and innocent tenderness with which the young boy contemplates the huge, savage bull, fearless and unflinching.
Defined rules of the game that are gradual respectful, guide the child's contacts with the savage world of the living.
It is a noble game, intellectually liberated, transforming the anxiety of Nature and the terror of sexuality into the material of art."
