You might have seen him at the Open Source Expo at Incubate 2011. Just Quist is a painter working and living in Tilburg. The theoretical frame he works in might be eyebrow-rising and difficult to understand for contemporary art-dummies. Nevertheless, his paintings and collages are esthetically beautiful, but never boring. Graphic, well thought out compositions , put together with a playful palette of materials, shapes and colors.
A description about his work in his own words:
“I make painting-related objects.
Within my work I research and try to implement contemporary influences and techniques concerning the concretion and formal approach towards painting.
Working with digital techniques makes some works concrete.
A mirror, and perhaps with a lesser reflective surface glass, is used not more than its physical qualities and defines a framework within or about which a picture can evolve. Some mirrored surfaces are reduced in size and placed in evasive direction. Its interactive randomness opposes its sharp law-making edge.”
