Juliet Sugg is an artist challenging the boundaries of visual narrative and popular perceptions of women. Using multidisciplinary approaches that position the viewer inside the story, the work takes the form of 'live', graphic experiences. Confessional, sometimes difficult subject matter, are wrapped inside deceptively sugary imagery, asking the viewer to question their own voyeurism.
Combining drawing, performance and installation art, she has been commissioned both commercially and personally for various organisations such as Whitechapel Gallery and Southbank Centre (a CV is available on request).
Her practice concerns themes such as transgression, the gaze, confessional art, trauma, body horror and the monstrous feminine. Both artwork and critical research question the evolution of folklore, the perception of women within narrative and stereotypes of female hysteria.
She co runs a MA in Illustration & Visual Media at London College of Communication for University of the Arts, London with Dr Charley Peters.
