From 13 May to 2 July 2016, the Carouge gallery Le Salon Vert welcomes an exhibition by the English artist Juliette Losq, who will present her most recent drawings as well as a unique book, Nemus.
Juliette Losq was born in London in 1978. She studied Fine Arts at the Wimbledon College of Art from 2004 to 2007 and at the Royal Academy Schools from 2007 to 2010, specializing in academic drawing. She won the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2005, while still a student. She uses pen and Chinese ink on paper to create her work, and sometimes watercolor to highlight areas of color. She has also incorporated drawings into her large installations like the “Wunderkammer” exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2010. Juliette Losq has exhibited both collectively and individually in London, as well as in Paris (Galerie Arcturus, 2013) and New York (Theodore Art, 2012). Some of her most recent awards include the Windsor and Newton Painting Prize, at the Griffin Gallery Open (2015), the John Moores Prize – Finalist and Visitor’s Choice Award (2014) as well as the Catlin Art Prize, (Short-listed Artist, 2012).
