Jus Juchtmans

BIOGRAPHY












Jus Juchtmans’s monochromatic paintings are deceivingly complex. Each aspect of the luminescent work from the stretcher to the number of layers of paint upon the surface is considered in the piece’s creation. Juchtmans’s interest lies in the act of viewing artwork. Drawing people in through the shining surfaces, Juchtmans’s work literally reflects how the surrounding environment colors one’s experience of viewing art. The artist’s neutrality towards symbolism or transference of a specific idea, and heightened attention to the artworks immediate surroundings connect his works to Minimalists such as Donald Judd and Dan Flavin, as well as monochrome painters of the same period, such as Mark Rothko and Yves Klein.

Jus Juchtmans (b. 1952) lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium. He has exhibited extensively throughout Europe, the United States and Australia. Works by Juchtmans are included in several prominent public and private collections including the Peter Stuyvesant Collection (Amsterdam, NL), The Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum (Hagen, DE) and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (La Jolla, CA.)
