Juliets work reveals an unrelenting fascination for light and movement and the critical role these elements can play in creating a strong sense of mystery and ambiguity in painting.' - Tony Geddes, Director, Mosman Galleries

'BEING AN ARTIST is about wrestling with shape, colour, composition, and
the sheer stuff of paint, and how you can learn to work it so that it becomes your
language to communicate.' (Juliet Holmes à Court, 2002)
This statement sums up the last 20 years of Juliet Holmes à Courts life as an artist. Her body of work pays its dues to abstraction and the idea that the surface of a picture can be a site for contemplation and self reflection, and no need not bear any deliberate relationship to the outside world.
