A Vision Statement

Juliet van Otteren

Juliet van Otteren

I strive in my work to point through the visible form into what is not readily perceptible, the universally human. I see my art as the creation of images compelling enough in their power to invite and invoke that connectedness which slumbers in the deepest recesses of our being – images which can draw us deeper in participation with the universally human. My responsibility as an artist-photographer is to open up something beyond the form, through the juxtaposition of light and dark, form and movement, statement and silence, that reveals the essence, the multi-dimensional of the greater whole.

I believe that my images express an awakening from the dark minimalism of yesterday and are the enunciation of the spiritual inner expansion of tomorrow. Not art for arts sake, but art for the upliftment of the human spirit.
