About

20070530 is primarily green with undertones of yellow.

Jus Juchtmans’ works may initially be viewed as monochromes, yet they defy the regular definition, reflecting the joining of up to 30 layers of paint in various tints and tones. Skillfully stretching micro-layers of acrylic and acrylic gel medium atop one another, the artist seems to create an illusionary sense of space. The effect is balanced by thick drips at the edges of the canvas, breaking any illusion, grounding, and giving attention to the painting in its surrounding area.

The paintings of Jus Juchtmans reward extended viewing by revealing subtle colors and shapes from beneath the surface glaze. Viewing the paintings from multiple vantage points, the colors and shapes of pulled layers emerge from beneath. As color is undoubtedly an integral part of Jus’ work, the light conditions, itself variable based on time of day, also contribute a great deal to the experience of viewing Juchtmans’ work.
