Jacquard Selfie, 2016
Photoshop edited selfie, jacquard weaving.
Juliana Scherzer is a textile artist working out of Nova Scotia, Canada. Juliana works primarily in free-motion embroidery on water soluble fabric to create 3D structures out of thread. These three-dimensional thread sculptures reflect drawing in both their creation and final form resulting in a duality of the flat and the 3D. This reflects the duality of the known and unknown places of textiles in our lives, a concept she seeks to explore through various subjects.
Juliana's main interests lie in biology, the vein of her thesis work, and in history. Juliana hopes to create work that engages a viewer in the same ways she is engaged with these topics while creating her work.
Residing in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Juliana is an Artist-in-Residence at the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design.
