Jus Juchtmans, ‘20080107’, 2008, Renate Bender

Jus Juchtmans was born in Mortsel, Belgium, in 1952. He lives and works in Antwerp.

With his oscillating creations, which are made of numerous layers of colour, the artist belongs to one of the most well known artistic positions in Europe in the field of monochrome painting. The work of Jus Juchtmans, however, can only be termed pure monochrome in the widest sense. In contrast to other colleagues of this genre the many different layers of colour are visible or at least vaguely discernable, and the extremely glossy surface intentionally creates mirror images that form a picture within a picture.
