About the Artist

Justin Emmanuel Dumas’ work understands the surface as narrative, marks, abrasions, wounds, and repairs that become gesture. The combined presence of these gestures manifest as the spectral evidence of human agency. These final painting-shaped objects, which endlessly approach and depart from completion, present a moment for re-collection and the excavation of public memory.
