juli Jana has returned from a recent solo exhibition at the Made In Greenwich Gallery in London to exhibit Stratagems, a solo exhibition of paintings and graphics at The Cape Gallery.
juli Jana invites the spectator to be a participant in a vibrant, visual experience. Her work has a lyrical, poetic quality and fluidity of expression, lending itself to interpretation. Shapes, lines, abstract forms, sometimes with a reference to realism, form the basis of her work in small and large compositions. Colour and tone are presented in their stark intensity or in subtle variations. She works in oils, acrylics and various printmaking methods. She is constantly exploring new perspectives, taking her inspiration from her surroundings, whether city or landscape. This she explores in the abstract.
juli Jana has held a number of solo shows in South Africa and in England, where she studied printmaking. She has participated in various group shows both with printmakers and painters.
