Justin’s work, including From the Depths, focuses on juxtaposition of color, depth, and texture. Paint and plaster are added using a variety of tools including some that have been created/modified to support this project. From the Depths is heavily textured with numerous layers of paint and plaster. In some places, the texture extends more than two inches from the canvas. This creates a third dimension which provides a vibrant energy and encourages a viewer to re-engage at many places across the canvas. Justin draws on numerous influences ranging from the rich cultures and colorful traditional art experienced while growing up in New Mexico to the dynamism, diversity, and power of major 24-hour cities worldwide.
