AEDRA Gallery                                                          Artist Feature Catalogue

Warm thanks to AEDRA Fine Arts and Curator MICHAEL HANNA for featuring my work in their on-line Exhibits and Artist's Catalogue. Wonderful clear-cut presentation and a critical review to match!

"Juliet Vles creates breathtaking paintings which make clever use of negative space and geometry. Strategically filled with harsh angles and glass squares, her work has an overall architectural-like appearance. The paintings have reflective surfaces from glass and/or textured appearances from mixed media similar to the look of concrete or aged plaster. The interactions between warm and neutral tones creates an atmosphere of ambient reflection. (…)
With rugged intuition combined with refined elegance, these compositions bloom towards a network of optical distortions regarding the relationship between two- and three dimensionality. A very complex painting which offers an exercise in the extremities of perspective and distortions.
Beautiful and spirited, these works convey Juliet’s artistic maturity and understanding of creating fascinating art which remains eloquent and with composed stimulation rather than instant gratification."

Interview in ANIMA MUNDI Art magazine

As European Capital of Culture 2022, the historical Lithuanian city of Kaunas is actually the center of many outstanding cultural manifestations. It is a very special acknowledgment of my work that the Lithuanian artmagazine «Anima Mundi» has chosen to feature my artistic creation with a 12-page interview in their summer edition. My special thanks to Art Director Zita Vilutyte for her interest in my work and the exquisite presentation, and to the editor Vilija Salomaa for her generous support and multilinguistic competence!

                                             Das Rathaus wird zum Kunstraum

Wandskulpturen von Juliet Vles im Zurzacher Rathaus Flecken. Auf Einladung des Gemeinderates installiert die Künstlerin zehn Werke ihrer Krypta serie im Gemeindehaus.

Die sachliche Innenarchitektur des Rathauses rund um die zentrale Marmortreppe bildet einen passenden Rahmen für die abstrakten, geometrisch angelegten Werke der Künstlerin. Eine gelungene Synthese von Arbeitswelt und kontemplativem Kunstraum ist so entstanden. Zeitgenössische Kunst als Alltag – eine Option, über die man sich zumindestens mal Gedanken machen könnte...

Es ist für mich eine ganz besondere Ehre, dass EXIT Schweiz einige meiner glassworks zum Bildthema für die letzte Ausgabe ihres Info Magazins ausgewählt hat. EXIT ist eine humanitäre Vereinigung, die sich seit ihrer Gründung in 1982 für das menschliche Selbstbestimmungsrecht im Leben und im Sterben einsetzt. Die wichtigsten Tätigkeitsbereiche der Organisation sind Hilfe bei der Abfassung der Patientenverfügung, medizinische und juristische Beratung, Palliativpflege und Suizidbegleitung. Das Recht des Menschen auf einen friedlichen, schmerzfreien und würdigen Tod ist auch heute nur in vier europäischen Ländern gewährleistet: in den Niederlanden, Belgien, Luxemburg und der Schweiz.
