Jean-Marc Bustamante

April 27, 2012

Glassy inks exhibit unexpected mutability on the transparent surface of Plexiglas tablets in Jean-Marc Bustamante’s abstract paintings.  The artist uses a variety of artistic languages to accomplish his works, first rendering his drawings on millimeter paper, then digitally re-working his abstract designs, and finally silk screening the image onto Plexiglas in vivid hybrid colors.  Yet, it is the unique character of the transparent canvas that literally reflects the light conditions and surrounding architecture.  The wall becomes the work’s backdrop, allowing viewers to encounter not only the bright façade of the work, but also the array of shadows cast by screen-printed lines.
