Juliet E P Gibbs
Juliet E P Gibbs (b. 1996 in Somerset, UK) lives and works in London. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Falmouth University in 2018. Gibbs’ work focusses mainly on the contrast between the organic and the man-made. The work seeks to look at the direct impact humanity poses in relation to the world we live in, and how nature inevitably fights back. This age-old conflict creates an interesting ‘push-and-pull’ that we can all observe in the places we live, work and visit.
Work based on glass-houses looks at microcosmic environments built in unlikely settings. Huge glass buildings housing exotic and rare plants not naturally found in European climates. Otherworldly plants that cling to moisture and heat, growing in curated environments: An artificial wilderness that clings to steel girders and concrete foundations instead of dense jungle. A fascination with the anatopism of nature in these environments gave way to this continued series of paintings.
