Justin Heller, a colorblind painter, artwork appears in the Piermont Flywheel Gallery Holiday Art Show.

Justin Heller is profoundly colorblind and is also an artist. He is currently presenting a painting at the Piermont Flywheel Gallery’s annual Holiday Exhibit. The exhibit runs from December 10th to December 31st, 2009.

Justin says he “likes using bold and intense colors (as I am able to see these much better than subtle shades) although I am often told that my art often embodies strong color field depth and shading. As I do not see a conventional color representation of an item, I tend to paint in the abstract about a memory or feeling I have about the subject of the art. I work with Acrylic paints as I find them more challenging to work with when blending colors. I predominately start with primary and secondary colors and blend directly on the canvas to reach a broader color spectrum.”
