Dream-like surrealism & the fluidity of boundaries.Buy This Print
Juliet Pierce Australia
I am a collage artist based in Darwin, Australia. My work is a combination of traditional art-making with digital process, integrating mixed media, photography, and vintage ephemera. I have a passion for paint, paper textures, whimsical design elements, and magical-surrealist perspective. I use a Fujifilm digital camera, a scanner, and a variety of media; as well as Corel Painter and Photoshop. The focus of my photography is to create textures, by photographing clouds, water, glass, light, flowers, organic materials, cloth, and unusual surfaces. I collect postcards, and keep letters, and love to combine materials into unique compositions. I use copyright free source materials from vintage books and suppliers. For me, collage is a form of story-telling and poetry; it celebrates the small, the inarticulate, the fragmented, and the impermanent. Ultimately, collage is generous and optimistic, and it is a wonderful metaphor for transformation and renewal. I believe that life is inherently sacred and I strive to create artwork that reflects this intuitive orientation.
