Juliana Rempel creates ceramic sculptures influenced by everyday objects and the traditions of Still Life. Exploring the relationship between familiarity and ambiguity, these silent objects look to find a voice within their frame. Inspired by the ability of the everyday to renew in us an act of knowledge, Juliana’s groupings create new platforms for these objects to exist, ultimately representing these objects for their symbolic values. Within the soft and muted colours of the mundane, there is a silence. Through the silence, vivid colours and shapes emerge to create a disturbance among the stillness.
