This is the website of Dallas based artist and educator Justin Clumpner.  Working primarily in paint and collage, he depicts symbolic narratives built around portraiture.  Using newspaper and advertisements as source material, Clumpner looks to our contemporary existence to find the maddening, the ironic, and the absurd.  He uses this imagery to create secular icons of morality inspired by the stained glass windows and illuminated manuscripts that were ever-present in his upbringing.  Using these same symbolic elements mixed with contemporary imagery, he creates something both new and familiar.

 

Justin Clumpner holds degrees from the Savannah College of Art and Design and the University of Illinois at Chicago, and he is pursuing a master’s degree from Texas Tech.   His work can currently be seen at the Kettle Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.
