Event description

Description

This September, join us in the Drawing Room for an In Conversation with British contemporary artist, Juliette Losq, who will be interviewed by renowned independent Art Adviser/Curator, Selina Skipwith.

Losq's ink and watercolour installations explore how we interact with the natural world. Towards the fringes of any conurbation exists land that is in a state of flux. Developments come and go to be replaced or reoccupied by nature. Losq’s paintings seek to describe these ephemeral borderlands. Her use of materials reflects her art historical background and she will discuss some of the influences – both technical and thematic – that run through her work, describing its' evolution up to the present day.

Internationally recognised, Losq's work can currently be found in the Drawing Room at the House of St Barnabas and is also in leading collections including the Saatchi Collection, All Visual Arts London Collection, Newnham College Cambridge Collection, and Newhall Women's Art Collection. Losq won this year's John Ruskin Prize, the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2005, was shortlisted for the Catlin Prize in 2011, and was one of the five shortlisted artists for the John Moores Prize in 2014, receiving the Visitor’s Choice Award.

Solo shows include: Terra Infirma, Waterhouse and Dodd, London; Nemora, The Fine Art Society Contemporary, London, 2014; Dans la poussière de cette planète, Galerie Arcturus, Paris, 2013; Lucaria, Theodore Art, New York, 2012; Life of Wood c/o BTAP, Seoul, 2009.
