Thatcher Projects presents the first New York solo exhibition of paintings by Belgian artist, Jus Juchtmans. Juchtmans paintings are often described as monochromes. However, not unlike a work of Robert Ryman, Juchtmans is interested in the viewer not only experiencing the monochrome as painting, but also as object. Every aspect of a painting’s materiality is considered, including the stretchers, how the paint is applied and its thickness, as well as its presentation in a space.
