JULIETTE LOSQBritish b. 1978

Losq's watercolours and installations form immersive environments into which the viewer may feel they can walk or fall into. Losq challenges the traditional ideas of watercolour and using resist technique, Losq works over the surface repetitively as if building up an etching plate, creating multiple painted layers which simultaneously obscure and reveal those beneath. Her works explore how humans interact with the society in which they live and how the interact with the natural world, establishing their print on the natural world.

Born in 1978, Losq initially studied History of Art at the University of Cambridge, before achieving her MA in 18C British & French Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art in 2001. A few years later she returned to education, enrolling at Wimbledon College of Art to spend three years studying painting and afterwards she went on to get her PG Dip in Fine Art from the Royal Academy schools, in London. Losq has been selected for numerous awards, in 2005 she won the Jerwood Drawing prize. She was also selected for the prestigious John Moores Painting Prize in 2014, shown at the Walker gallery in Liverpool, where she was winner of the Visitors’ choice award.

Internationally she has exhibited in Paris, Seoul and New York. Her works can be found in the Saatchi Collection, All Visual Arts London Collection, University of Cambridge Collection, and Newhall Women's Art Collection.
