Justin Wheatley
Holladay, Utah

After receiving his BFA from Utah State University, Justin and his classmates continued to meet monthly to critique one another’s work. Now, ten years later, the group is still going strong. “We have even taken turns curating shows that have been accepted to museums across the state,” says Justin. He attributes much of his creative success to the support from his fellow artists. The process is reminiscent of many historical artist groups that critiqued and exhibited artwork together. In terms of aesthetic, Justin’s houses and barns lean toward a hard-edge contemporary look while retaining painterly qualities. The artist utilizes many layers of paint to achieve thick, opaque colors. He adds, “It can also be a metaphor for the history of what has taken place in any given home.”
