About Juliana Capes ☁︎☁︎☁︎
Juliana Capes is a multidisciplinary artist working across film, description, painting, drawing, participation and installation. A unifying interest in her work is that of colour and her recent research has involved looking at colour and description.
Juliana lives and works in Edinburgh. She has worked in the arts in Scotland for the last 23 years, exhibiting most recently at Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery, Royal Scottish Academy and Edinburgh Art Festival.
Juliana’s diverse practice often uses the vocabulary of natural phenomena to ask questions about the processes of feeling, seeing and believing. She is also passionate about access to the arts and concurrently works in creative learning in galleries and community contexts. In particular over the last 15 years she has worked extensively with a Visually Impaired audience, notably as lead artist on the National Gallery of Scotland’s Visual Impairment programme.
