Born in London (England), in 1978

With ink and watercolour, Juliette LOSQ creates a deep mesh that transports us to the border between the urban world and the wilderness. These strange and disturbing places plunge our eyes in the abundance of greenery in the midst of which teem graffiti, trash, crumbled walls, strange animals. All in shades of grey, green, brown, producing a mesmerizing poetry. She has been awarded several prizes in England and is part of the Saatchi collection.

Art reviews

“ People are often confused as to whether they are looking at drawings, prints or paintings when they see my work in the flesh. I’ve borrowed parts from both watercolour painting and the process of etching. I build up the work like you would an etching plate, masking off areas then inking over them until the final image is ‘developed’ and revealed. I then add further detail and watercolour washes over this. I enjoy hovering between the different disciplines. Watercolour historically has connotations of feminine domesticity, or as being a sketching medium that is used in small scale preparatory works. I like the idea of turning these presumptions on their head in terms of the scale of the work and, to an extent, the disruptions to the landscape that I introduce.”
