Depot Artspace presents a pop-up exhibition of ceramic works by Juliet Jackson in our Pocket Gallery in association with the NZ Outsider Art Fair 2016.
Originally a painter, Juliet Jackson became blind in 2009 and has since learnt to explore art through her other senses. Using touch, Jackson began working with sculpture and ceramics, creating compelling and visually arresting works.
“Since becoming blind, working with ceramics has been a way to enjoy my visual imagination and to express my ideas. When we let ourselves be open to people we learn something about their lives, their culture and their diversity.” – Juliet Jackson
A finalist in the Attitude Artistic Achievement Awards 2015, Jackson’s creativity extends to writing and performance. She will be releasing her novel Lifting the Mask during the NZ Outsider Art Fair 2016.
