About the Artist
The artist and the genius behind the artist
(the artist receiving divine inspiration)
Justice has a background in both the arts and the sciences and has traveled
widely and lived and worked in the US and abroad. He has experience in both
academia and industry, including time spent as an entrepreneur, with his own
company. Along the way, he studied visual arts in several Universities and
ateliers. He was also one of the early pioneers in the field of computer-generated
music and once held a celebration and performances of new music in honor of a
special visit by the "Dean of American Composers", Aaron Copland.
Quoting from the artist: "I share an affinity with many artists who love nature and
the outdoors. Did I mention the smell of clean fresh air, the scents of each and
every season and place in its turn, the brightness of color washed in the light of a
sunny day, and even the grays of an overcast sky filled with storm clouds that
bring the promise of rain and renewal of life? If these words conjure up visions in
your mind and imagination, which evoke sensual responses and emotions, then
you understand something abut what motivates me to be what I am and to do what
I enjoy photography as well as drawing and painting, and continue to be active in
both endeavors. Over the years, and primarily through my travels, I have
amasssed a large collection of photographic images in both color and black and
white formats. These serve to bring me back to a particular moment in time and
space and to refresh the memory of my experience at that time. In so doing, they
sometimes serve as inspiration for new works of art.
Here you will find both works by my hand, as well as photographic images from
my collection, and, in some cases, the melding of the two (art made from
photography, or conceived in digital format), which I refer to as "Photo Art". Much
of this is experimental and from each, I learn something new.
In figurative work, where I have been spending time recently, I am a kindred spirit
to and influenced by the works of Alberto Vargas, Gil Elvgren, Rolf Armstrong,
Patrick Nagel, Pino, and so many other great artists and illustrators working in
this genre. I would aspire to be able to do what they did so well. You'll find some
recent examples of my recent excursions into the world of the contemporary
"pinup" here, and I hope you'll like it. I'll be doing much more of this and will be
posting it regularly.
From the point of view of traditional landscape and related art, I am influenced by
the works of Sargent, Homer, Whistler, Sorolla, and so many more of the truly
great artists who have left such great legacies with us."

If I were an eagle, I'd soar as a free spirit above the mountains and clouds; over the
sea and shore, and down to the valleys and plains. I'd see and I'd experience as
much as I could from my unique vantage point on high. But, sadly, I'd miss the
greatest adventure of all - the chance to try my hand at preserving and interpreting
all that I had seen - and imagining and perhaps giving expression to all that I had
not seen. Without that challenge and opportunity, life could not be as meaningful or
as exciting as, without a doubt, it was meant to be!
The artist is free to create, and does create, a world of his own vision and
imagination. In so doing, he captures within it perhaps his own identity and
perhaps the essence of another world he'd like to know, but can only imagine. The
"genius" muse is my own creation and I had fun imagining and creating her. Where
would we be if we hadn't all joined into and played our own roles in the
never-ending quest to imagine and to create our own realities and our own futures!
May we all be forever free to imagine and to create, and to follow our own hearts
and dreams now and to the end of time....
