Poetic Emotion

A glimpse into the fascinating world of an artist at work…
Kevin Bisbangian’s short film has imaginatively connected the viewer to the passion, emotion and inspired creativity that is Juliette Jeanclaude. Combining painting, poetry, dance, meditation, movement and music a fascinating assortment of art is created. Representing her desire to see from her heart, Juliette literally paints an eye on the heart in one of her striking works. Working in her studio, we are taken deep into the mind and soul of a unique woman. Painting the portrait of a woman involves not just the model sitting for the artist in the traditional sense but a union between artist and sitter through touch, movement and dance so the artist and model develop a relationship which transcends to the finished painting. Vibrant colours are built up in a patchwork design producing bold, striking, emotional works. Juliette wears her heart on her sleeve and it seems to slip down to the paintbrush and fall onto the canvas where love, emotion and beauty are ejected from the heart. There is a sense of tenderness and poignancy throughout the film, but also the sensation that we have been on a mesmerising voyage through the life and soul of the artist as well as the film maker himself.

In 2012, Romina Rovira called me as she wanted to create a 2min movie about someone who makes things with her hands. She created a gorgeous little film capturing the essential of my work: my three wishes.

The three wishes I sent to the universe in 2008 when I decided to take ownership of my gifts and my life…
