Public Reception: January 17, 1:00-3:00 p.m. Justin’s love of nature inspires his paintings of sur- real landscapes and imagery. His work has drawn inspiration from his travels through the redwood forests of Oregon and the Austrian Alps. Justin also uses his education in Landscape Architecture to inform the flow and geometry of his pieces. Pri- marily working with oil on canvas, he brings his visions to life using rich earth tones with uncon- ventional dashes of color to create depth of field. Justin uses scale to amplify the visual impact of his pieces. From far away, his works blend together to create a peaceful landscape, but when viewed closely, bold brush strokes and a dramatic use of color energize his work.
