Juliet Collins Statement

In my art I seek to express my love of natural forms including the human form, my wonder at the processes of nature and the natural environment and my fascination with discovering the mysteries exposed in the layers and structures within forms. I am interested in this as a metaphor for considering the human condition & psyche. In sculpture I am currently working with metals, plaster, concrete and found objects. In 2D I am exploring textiles to create life drawings in embroidered thread & fabrics. My drawing – and especially life drawing – is the starting point for all the art I make. I never tire of observing the beauty of the human form or of the challenge of depicting what I see and feel. My response is always emotional.

My current series of works are the result of my experimentation with fabrics, machine embroidery, felting, collage and other techniques. Working in this way allows me to combine my love of drawing the human form with using inspiring materials that let me express what I feel and how I, as a woman, experience the world. I have been thrilled to discover the enormous expressive potential of textiles which also satisfy my sculptural need for texture, form and construction. I aim to express the essence of the moment; the aching beauty of the figurative line, and my joy in the textures, colours and patterns of the materials I am using. I hope to express atmosphere and emotion whilst also achieving an overall decorative effect. Just as found objects have always been an important element in my sculpture, guiding my direction and giving my sculptural processes a chance element that is to me essential, I enjoy discovering and choosing my fabrics, many of which are recycled, and allow their designs, textures and personality to take me on a journey to the finished piece.
