  • Artist’s Statement

    My work seeks to reflect a sense of stillness, space and the visual history of time evident in the western landscape. Some inclusion of the horizontal line has been a consistent presence throughout my current work acting as a grounding element that not only holds and defines the picture plane, but also references my experience of time and place. It alludes to the vast space and geology of the western landscape where I live. There, time makes itself present in horizontal layers evidencing the past, both building up and wearing away in a continuous process. My many layers of translucent strata composed of pigmented wax, oil, paper and other media, are built up and worn away similarly in a compressed period of creative time.

  • Biography

    Juhlin’s work is about discovery, the hint of possibility. It’s about the layers, the flow and the strata of things substantive, imagined, physical and implicit. Jeff works by accumulating layers of material, images and color that make up the whole of a work, then he goes back in to explore, excavate, expose and obscure. The end result is a non-literal visual form, a translation of that experience and process.

    "Often we see only the surface of things when in reality there are many layers, artifacts, histories, clues that hint of something curious and magical that might lay beneath the surface waiting to be discovered, excavated, explored and experienced."

    Jeff Juhlin has completed Residency/Fellowships at the Virginia Center for the Arts, Amherst, VA and the Moulin Au Neuf, Auvillar France. He has recently been an Artist in Residence at the Hui Art Center in Maui, Hawaii. His work has been featured in several publications including Encaustic with a Textile Sensibility by Daniela Wolf and Embracing Encaustic by Linda Womack. Jeff’s work can be found in numerous private, corporate and public collections. Jeff studied at the University of Utah and holds a BFA degree in drawing and painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. He maintains studios in Salt Lake City and Torrey Utah.
