Ju Ju Bartush

A classically-trained artist with a degree in fine arts, Juju crosses her figurative artist style with a contemporary illustrative flavor. Her abstract line of paintings features high-contrast textures to shape the mood of each piece and a unique collection of shapes to create their form. By combining different types of paint and media, Juju portrays the many different levels of our existence through color and texture. She has a special talent for capturing human images and finds herself constantly observing how shadows define the facial features of those around her. 
 
Juju’s goal for the observer of her art is to draw them into the painting, either through the eyes or the energy that the artwork creates. She aspires to capture the moment that takes them to the place where they can escape for those few moments in time. For it is those moments that create lasting memories. 
 
Her newest channel of creativity is a contemporary illustrative style that uses high intensity colors to generate brilliance, energy and contrast. Juju specializes in applying this style at a personal level with commissioned idealized portraits. 
 
Classic, beautiful faces, living One with Nature. 
Juju Bartush Reeves has always had a unique ability to capture the beauty of women. The faces she paints are striking. They speak to those whom they touch with their deep, sparkling, often piercing eyes. 
In One with Nature, Juju integrates her love of nature into the women she creates. The delicate complexity of the butterfly’s wing. Nurturing entanglements of flora and vine. They give Juju’s beautiful women tremendous depth – and make them simply mesmerizing. 
 
Artist’s Statement 
As an artist, I believe in practicing the sound principals of painting I have learned both classically and experimentally. I also believe that an artist should strive for something more than just the technical accuracy in their work, but an emotional bond of creative energies. There is a feeling, or reaction, that one gets when standing in front of a piece of art. Sometimes, it’s not an easy thing to describe, but one knows it when it happens. It might be the sense of place in the universe, the shafts of light on the subject, or a subtle expression in a portrait. These are the types of reactions one hopes are communicated by art. The best scenario is when the technical and emotional unite as one.
