Lost in Juliette Losq

“Broken sentences and forgotten names wink like fossils among the ruins” (Iain Sinclair, ‘Lights Out for the Territory’)

London’s Royal Academy of arts annually holds it RA Schools Show to, each summer, display graduates work and showcase the emerging talents of London. With academicians such as Tracey Emin behind the event, this is an extremely exciting date in the art calendar and Juliette Losq is tipped as the one to watch for 2010. The 31-year old Londoner creates captivating landscapes, brilliantly executed in an almost photographic style that whisk the viewer away to all together different time and place.

“Drifting purposefully is the recommended mode”(Iain Sinclair, ‘Lights Out for the Territory’)

Instead of idealistic and typically pretty settings, the collection of beautiful drawings and paintings focus on derelict and forgotten places. This allows the viewer’s imagination to wander through the image, piecing together what might have gone on there. For the Summer Show, Losq will be displaying a range of works that focus on dilapidated interiors just as enchanting as her outdoor spaces. Remember her name.
