The meaning of disambiguate is to remove the ambiguity from. The beauty of music (life) is that everyone has their own interpretation. It means something different to everyone. In the Disambiguation of Music I was just trying to make sense of what was happening in my life at the time. Trying to interpret the series of events that was taking place. I felt like I was no longer the conductor in my own life, it was in someone else's hands. Or so it seemed.
Juliette Hemingway is a self-taught artist who studied the atelier system of classical realism. Her work is influenced by an eclectic set of artists such as, Picasso, Basquiat, the Harlem Renaissance artists as well as comic book and graffiti artists. Juliette has developed her own very personalized and independent style. Her canvases are bold tones of color and precise pen & ink outlines. Her works are abstractions of the figure supported on a multimedia ground that adds depth and a dimensional quality. Each piece is a reflection of a moment in time, an experience, a chapter from her personal story. The one constant are the blue hued figures. The blue hues are a reflection of what is always present in her life and that is her beloved son. A young man with Autism. Despite what her experiences are in life, autism will always be a part of it and therefore, a part of her work.
