About the exhibition

Julia Jacquette’s work is closely related to her fascination with media images. She works with the elusive attraction that commercials can have on people. A curl of hair, worked out in details, makes us long for better and becoming more beautiful. Julia Jacquette gets inspired from pop art en shows in her work a vision on consumer society. Irony and desire, envy and perfection, fiction and reality: these are some examples of paradoxes that continuously return in her work.
The exhibition, with primary recent works, is an exploration of human desires. She creates a new reality in her paintings, wich she usually paints in series. Her works are in all aspects an illusion that confirms as well as critics the mediated perfection.
Julia Jacquette (New York, 1964) combines her artistic practice with being an assistant professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Het work is represented in museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the Museum of Contemporary Arts (Sydney). Julia Jacquette won several awards and each year her work is shown in solo- and group exhibitions.
