SAATCHI ART COLLECTION "WALL-BASED SCULPTURE" This work has been featured in the collection "Wall-Based Sculpture" selected by Saatchi Art Curator INDIA BALYEJUSA. THOMSON ART PRIZE This work has been longlisted for the Thomson art prize, curated by Thomson Gallery, Zug, Switzerland This entailes a digital show of my glasswork at the Thomson Gallery in Zug, Switzerland and in several international partner galleries during the year 2022, as well as another presentation of my work on ARTSY. NEW GLASSWORKS Between 1997 and 2003, I made a great many installations and sculptures of industrial glass - a medium difficult to handle but unique as to its infinite esthetical possibilities. These works were regrouped and shown as The Glassworks. The new glassworks that have been created in the course of this year are a logical continuation of the initial series and draw on the technical experience I acquired during that period. REVERSE GLASS PAINTING The technique of reverse glass painting consists in painting the back side of a glass panel which is then reversed so that the mirror image can be viewed through the glass. The artist plays with light, transparency and reflexions to create abstract and luminous works, often combining the glass with other material like paper, collage and wood.

Juliet Vles is an European multidisciplinary artist, born in 1950 in the Netherlands, of Swiss-French nationality and actually living and working in Switzerland. Essentially an abstract painter and sculptor, whose work is mainly to be found in arte povera and minimal art collections, her artistic interests also include installation work, drawing and digital painting. The works of the Krypta series, half-painting half-sculpture, are 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 does not seek to depict reality, nor even its abstraction, but the imago of an unconscious area of the mind not immediately accessible to analytical intelligence. Formally, the hallmark of Vles’ artwork is the unusual combination of its sober, geometrical underlying structure and the multilayered, rough texture of the painted surface. Although often shown in exhibitions featuring Concret Art, her work owes more to the Support/Surface movement than to formal Constructivism. In her recent work, the artist increasingly abandons the notion of "making images" and rather sees her wall sculptures as an extension of architecture - expanding the supporting wall by an additional physical and esthetical dimension. In 2017, the artist started working on a series of reverse glass paintings, revisiting the glass sculptures and installations she created between 1997 and 2003 and drawing on the technical experience she acquired during that period.
