Juliette Laird

Her working methods are based on playful exploration, looking to create layered meanings and visual metaphors. Preferring a hands-on approach, she shapes the work around stories, experiences and sites. Her work has been influenced by a range of artists who are interested in material properties and allusions, such as Eva Hesse and the Surrealists. She has a particular interest in issues of place and identity.

Since completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2005 she has exhibited regularly, mostly in group shows and increasingly outdoors and is also involved in art education at primary and tertiary level.
