Justin King: Tints and Textures

Justin King is a St. Louis based painter and sculptor. With unusual mediums such as cardboard and papier mache, he creates animals and pop influenced sculptures. His papier mache animal busts fool your eye into believing they’re cast bronze while his cardboard sculptures surprise you wth their detail and form. His paintings range from colorful fluid abstracts to stylized portraits. He sells work at New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary art and through private sales.

Our focus for this exhibit will be his abstract paintings. Using color and varied approaches, Justin creates compositions filled with textures that hint towards something recognizable, yet ambiguous: rust, a distant and muted horizon line, hints of layered paint. The canvases tread between contemporary compositions and a dilapidated structure of the past.
The exhibition runs from September 21 – November 2, 2018. Please join us for the opening reception of September 28 from 6 – 8 pm.
