Juliet Martin — You Don’t Look Crazy at Ivy Brown Gallery

Nov 14, 2019 | Blog post

Ivy Brown invites you to glimpse the mind and explore the work of Juliet Martin in her first solo exhibition at Ivy Brown Gallery

“You Don’t Look Crazy” uses Juliet’s experiences with bipolar disorder to discuss greater issues surrounding mental illness. ‘I am a different person when I am depressed, manic, or anxious.’Juliet Martin makes her viewers see the message beyond the joke. Her satiric memoirs illustrate personal stories with playful forms, painful punchlines, and caustic visual one-liners. Why fiber? Weaving fabric physically and mentally attaches her to her canvas. Her process is surprisingly improvised. Decisions are made as the shuttle moves across the threads.

If you look in my eyes, they are taken over by moods. You cannot see me. I’m not there. – Juliet Martin

Tuesday, November 19, 6-8pm Artist talk with Juliet Martin on her current exhibit ‘You Don’t Look Crazy’

Exhibition Dates: October 29-November 29
