About me:

Inspired by the natural world, Dolores Justus’ paintings reflect a sensitive and intuitive view that distills patterns of light and form into compositions that engage and inspire. Blurring the line between abstraction and representation, her painterly style also contributes to the interactive quality of her art. In her exploration of the confluence of optics and painterly abstraction, her work belongs to the “new landscape” movement of contemporary American art.

“I’ve always had a strong identification with nature and am continually in awe of the depth of inspiration that it offers. Despite all its variety, there are essential elements in it and in us all, that we respond to. It is those universal, underlying truths that I seek to communicate in my own work.” – Dolores Justus

Justus’ work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the nation and abroad for more than 30 years. Her work is included in a numerous public and private collections including: the Arkansas Arts Center, the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, Iberia Bank, the Alluvian Hotel, Delta Trust Bank, CASA Women’s Shelter, Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging at UAMS, CARTI Foundation in Little Rock, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, the Arkansas College of Health Education, the Country Club of Little Rock, ArcBest Corporate Headquarters, and many more. Justus’ work was also featured on the cover of “Elegant Homes” (Fall/Winter 2017 and January 2019). She earned a B.F.A. from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 1988.
