|Justin Burns Demo & Workshop
DEMO: New Products and Techniques from Golden 2021
Justin grew up in Farmers Branch, Texas and studied close to home at the University of North Texas. He earned his BFA focusing on Studio Drawing and Painting in 2013. Justin is interested in spaces and objects that may have had special meaning at one point in time but are now an object of permanence or a lingering memory of a time once past. What sparked this interest was when his family had a fire and lost all they owned, and he began to think about the memory of spaces and objects, their presence and the stories they withheld. One place in particular is Justin’s family farm that was established in 1914 and still resides in the small town of Kopperl, TX. The renderings of Kopperl are interior and exterior weathered relic like structures that once were an icon to the town, are now headstones. Nostalgic images of the Burns family farm, the kitchen or living room whispers the memory of family gatherings and quiet moments. Though there is no one left in these spaces and a slow descent as time takes its toll, there is still life, a presence and a story. Justin is currently an art educator for the NISD school district and is a Golden Working Artist for Golden Paints.
