About Justin

Artist’s Statement

Movement, form, freedom and time are integral components of my work, and they all combine to expand and extend confined interior spaces. In my paintings, I replicate smooth, water-like surfaces and boundless, open skies to absorb viewers into quieter, more contemplative worlds that, while focusing them in the present go beyond limited time constraints. My elongated free-standing sculptures and tapered wall installations similarly create the illusion of greater openness by bringing viewers’ gazes upwards and outwards. The overall effect creates greater spatial awareness and a deeper appreciation of our immediate surroundings, ones that are ultimately as intimate as they are boundless.

About the Artist

Mixed-media artist Justin Beller is known for work that represents both the physicality of space and the metaphysics of dreamlike states. In his paintings, wall installations and plinth-like towers, he uses vertical and horizontal lines, blocks of colors and repeating circles to distill the essence of earth, sky and water and to open closed interior surroundings.

Frequently commissioned by private collectors as well as corporate and small businesses, Justin maintains a one-man studio in Benson, one of Omaha’s fastest expanding arts districts.
