Juliette Pearce - Interview

Petra Power: The concept of place seems to be very significant in your work. What is the significance of documenting places through photography and then re-contextualising them through painting?

Juliette Pearce: The most important thing to me is that I visit these spaces and the most incredible frustration is that our eye-sight is not wide enough to capture it all. They almost feel quite cut-off, so putting collages and photos together gives me the opportunity to see a wider angle. When you go somewhere you don’t experience the world from one point of view, you look at one angle then go to the next and that is how you experience a place. So to photograph, it allows me to combine these spaces altogether within an image.
