Three Parts Human

June 1 — 22

“Jane with Shadow” Mixed media on wood panel 18 x 24 inches


Three Parts Human seeks to present characters from various times and locales and set them into a present and abstracted construct. Our human identities are drawn from our heritage and the stories of our ancestors, our perception of what we are in the present, and from what we think we could be. In short, our past, present and future selves.

Juliette draws inspiration from historical photographs, the people and situations in her own life, and from a rich imagination that was fostered in a childhood spent in Central America. She is drawn to people or faces who’s emotional story are written through expression or posture, allowing the viewer to draw conclusions on that story through the filter of their own history. The embellishments and found objects create physical layers and stand to represent the layers of self while also physically cementing the subject into the present.

Born in Costa Rica to a French mother and Argentinian father, Juliette was one of seven children in a large and adventurous family. She took to painting at a very young age, learning and working alongside her mother, who’s a successful artist in her own right. Her parents fostered and encouraged Juliette’s creativity throughout her young life and signed her up for her first official painting class at the age of ten. She has been studying painting ever since.

Juliette has studied at the Art Student’s League of New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She has shown her work extensively throughout North and South America and has collectors and is collected world wide. Currently, Juliette is exploring life in the American West and is living and painting amongst the old brick buildings of Denver, Colorado.
