Artist of the Month
Juliette Vos



Artist's Statement and Biography
Although my paintings are representational, 
they are often not literal translations of their 
subject matter. The subject can also be a 
metaphor for an emotion or memory from 
my own particular and distinctive experience 
as a woman - 
wife, mother as well as painter.
         I try to create a language of visual elements 
that communicates through the use of form, color, 
paint, quality and edges. Each painting is a 
dialogue of light and shadow, cool and warm, 
and near and far away. As an artist, I use all 
of these tools to interpret an idea. I enjoy exploring techniques that allow the paint or medium to have an uncontrolled life of its own. Sometimes the 
paint is left dripping and sometimes it is applied 
in a rich impasto. I paint primarily in oil because 
of its great flexibility but am working in all 
mediums, mostly on paper.
