Gary Justis

Gary Justis captures light projections using LED, incandescent, refracted, and reflected light to create virtual life forms. Hovering between complete abstraction and nearly-recognizable imagery, these portraits set themselves apart in an imaginative and highly original way, inviting the viewer to instinctively connect with them on an emotional and spiritual level. Justis expertly validates the viewer’s desire to seek symbolic substance in ethereal imagery and our innate need to assign meaning to conceptualized shapes and unexpected colors. Each of his portraits is inspired by the envisioned persona of an artist friend, in which he seeks to capture the subject’s unique and enigmatic characteristics.
