About Juliet Vles
Born in 1950 in Rotterdam NL. Of french-swiss nationality. Lives and works in the South of France. Essentially an abstract painter and sculptor, whose work is mainly to be found in arte povera and minimal art collections, the artists second area of interest is satirical drawing and collage in a realistic or surrealistic style. Actually, Vles is working on the KRYPTA series, relief or assemblage work, half-painting half-sculpture - geometrical constructions overlaid with painting, drawing and written panels incrusted, intarsia-like, into the supporting frame. The word «Krypta» (from Greek «hidden», «secret») stands for an artistic expression that depicts neither the reality nor the abstraction of our conscious perception of being, but the imago of an unconscious area of the mind not immediately accessible to analytical intelligence. Simultaneously, the artist works on the « transCerebral » series, a pictorial voyage around the human brain and its ambigeous role in human society, a cycle including paintings, collages and computer drawings.
The works of the KRYPTA series will be shown at the Château de Mons throughout the year 2015.
