“The painting shows the façade but the work speaks beneath the surface,” says Justin Wheatley about his multi-media paintings, a new batch of which are currently on exhibit at Salt Lake’s 15th Street gallery. Whether his subject is a Salt Lake bungalow or the Brooklyn Bridge, Wheatley’s mixed-media paintings are distinguishable in style, but those surface elements are mere indications to what the pieces are ultimately about . . .
Ehren Clark discusses Justin Wheatley’s new body of work at 15th Street Gallery in the September 2012 edition of 15 Bytes.
Ehren Clark studied art history at both the University of Utah and the University of Reading in the UK. He is now a professional writer living in Salt Lake City.
