Juliet Thibault. Painter
Everyone’s past is a product of what they are today, including trees. The wood grains of a tree are the heart of it. Each grain line tells a story of this trees life. And like our lives, one year is great and the next you’ve hit rock bottom. I thinly use a modern oil palette to push my aspect of painting through the fascination that comes from the intricacies of the tree. From each wooden panel I draw inspiration from natural and organic forms. Layering the wood and giving it a cut edge brings each viewer in – it accentuates the liveliness of that tree’s history by following the grain. The landscapes I create are mostly from the emotions and tribulations of a chaotic life. There is energy I capture from thought, emotion and everyday life that serve as the basis of a storyline in each piece created. The grain of each panel of wood I pick up serves as the inner soul of the artwork and presents a sense of foundation.
Although in some of my pieces the grain is very subtly shown, it still exists. Each organic landscape has a true meaning of what it is like to be free, to be hidden and yet revealed again. In the same sense however, the foundation and grain also controls me. It dictates where certain parts of the painting should go.
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Juliet graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2008. A landscape artist with an expressionistic view, Juliet wants her viewers to experience a personal connection with nature. She believes that each of us have a connection with the organic hidden beauty that she is drawn too in her work. I create art so that people can view landscapes and the world around us differently.
