Jeff Juhlin

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.
