Juju Roche

Artist Juju Roche explores the distance between the real and the imagined with her reflective style and enchanting interpretations.

Using a variety of mediums including; Indian pigment, oil pastels, ink, acrylic and varnish on canvas, Juju explores the fundamental artistic elements of colour, form and material, capturing a transitory meeting between chance and considered application. Central to her method is working on the canvas horizontally, inviting the colours and materials to slowly work together, blend, or resist each other.

The years of study, including a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Sydney College of the Arts, combined with the influence of travels to Africa, India, Nepal, Thailand and Japan has informed Juju’s work and enabled the emergence of a style that is lyrical and enchanting, inviting the observer to be drawn into the whirling mass of pigment stained canvas and layers of amber shellac.
