  • About the artwork

    Margulis’ utmost concern is the creation of geometric shapes conceived mostly by changing the perspective of the viewer accompanied by the philosophical notion that everything in life has multiple levels of narrative, spatial perceptions, as well as varying degrees of empathy and diversity. Margulis sustains strong parallels between the human experience and the exposure to his works of art. Like life, his oeuvre entails a myriad of experiences that will move the viewer’s perception about reality.

    Another important element in Margulis´work is the use of light and the translucency of color. He recognizes that the strong and dramatic use of bright and contrasting colors in his body of work stems from his years spent in Mexico and, of course, from his exposure to the tropical landscapes of Venezuela. He works with curved shapes, volumetric geometries, transparencies, intense colors filtered through light and plays with endless combinations in a continuum of colored layers, coupling these with photographs of his own work to create a complete cycle of a highly nuanced practice.

    Through a complex process, Margulis posits that the open threshold of humankind and the variety of paths that coexist in human society interact with one another to continually challenge our perception of life itself.

J Margulis

Born in: 1970


Translation in progress

I digitally design 3-D objects and compositions, and cut them in slices from different types of plastic sheet materials. These slices are then fixed to a rigid canvas, a pedestal or held together in space. Most of my work is done using acrylic sheets with different levels of translucency in a range of colors, graphic patterns, textures and photographic images directly printed on the sheets' surfaces. The bright and fully saturated color palettes to which I instinctively gravitate to, is heavily influenced by the traditional Mexican arts and crafts which made a great impact on me during the time that I lived there.

I treat my three-dimensional pieces as light traps or secret blueprints, in which by controlling the placement of its components, I'm able to create intriguing 3-D containers. Their designs are then fully revealed by applying or “pouring" light into them. In a sense, light becomes the ink that reveals the design by following a 3-D template. The light source may vary from natural to one or more fixtures, placed on precise locations in relationship to the subject, with specific power, color temperature, angle and proximity.
