New Show in Lily’s: Paintings by Justin Hoekstra

The Roger Smith Hotel is thrilled to present paintings by Justin Hoekstra.

An abstract painter, Hoekstra’s work is an ongoing investigation into the paradoxical nature of the human condition and an attempt to make sense of the cyclical nature of existence. His work mirrors the process of growth and decay that we all experience as we move through life. This is portrayed in the repeated layering of paint and the subsequent erosion of those layers to create a complete painting.
