About Justin Gaffrey
Justin Gaffrey is a self-taught, locally and nationally known artist who challenges himself and the norms of art on a regular basis while also pushing the boundary at any chance he gets. His work studio is outfitted with a full metal and woodworking shop, creating free-standing sculptural works and sculptural paintings. Gaffrey’s work is loose and expressive but underplayed with intense study and practice. His work can be an emotional landscape of his home in northwest Florida, to life-size human skeletons, exposing a confused and beautiful life. While Gaffrey is primarily known for his heavily textured style of stacking layers of paint onto the canvas with a palette knife, his work is constantly changing like a moving target, making it difficult to pinpoint any particular genre or theme of art.
