My artist interview for week 7 is Juliette Angulo.
Juliette’s art involves pictures of her sister except she is cut out of the image. Juliette has a younger sister who joined the military. Her sister is a Mechanical engineer who fix Apache helicopters for the army. Juliette’s sister was a big part of her life so when she enlisted to the army, she lost someone important. She said although she still talks to her via message or Skype, it felt weird not being able to spend time with her being physically there. Her sister lives on a base in El Paso, Texas and is on a trip to Kuwait. Her sister just turned 21 and will be on the trip for roughly 9 months.
Juliette’s art involves the use of her sister. She is trying to convey a message of how her sister joining the military caused her pain and loneliness. her art has pictures that she took of her sister. She cut an outline of her sister out to show how she is missing from her life. Aside from her art with photography, she is currently working with metals for her artwork. I don’t have anyone in my family who is enlisted in the military so I can not imagine how it must of felt. It is good that her sister will be coming back some times in July or August.
I thought her artwork was pretty interesting. Even though she just cut a picture, it leaves a huge impression on the audience. It is simple, yet has a big meaning to it.
