20121116 is primarily red and blue. Skillfully stretching micro-layers of acrylic and acrylic gel medium atop one another, the Belgian artist Jus Juchtmans creates 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. 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. The paintings 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.
