28 May - 26 June 2011
Juliette Paull has created a new collection of abstracted paintings that will fill Kestle Barton with a fluid sense of depth and dynamics this June. In her new work Paull uses paint, and the activity of painting, to explore her ongoing interest in the ‘unspoken’ – depicting internal landscapes and various elements of (human) nature.
“Elemental Truths deals with cycles, growth and change internally and externally. The paintings develop intuitively, always as a group so they form a dialogue together- they tend to fight with each other until a harmony is achieved. What lies at the core of my work is a desire to express things that cannot be described in words. My aim as an artist is to create work that is raw, honest and straight from the heart.“ Juliette Paull 2011
Paull’s painting technique includes several layers of paint, applied and stripped back to produce a final image. The process demands that many paintings are developed simultaneously as sufficient time is needed between layers. Through this method a ‘body of work’ emerges that features individual works of art, while also creating a comprehensive thesis that marks the emotive journey the artist has taken in exploring a particular theme. The exhibition will feature around twenty new works on canvas. All of which are for sale.
