OUT OF WATER

feature

Friday • July 1st, 2022

Arch Enemy Arts is delighted to present: OUT OF WATER, the latest series of work by fine illustrator Juliet Schreckinger. The show debuts a collection of brilliant ink and graphite drawings centering marine fauna, each crisply rendered and exhibiting fantastical juxtaposition.

 

Based in Amityville, NY, Juliet is inspired by the geography and environment local to her. Her technique is born from an appreciation of black and white photography, to which she has carefully developed over the last decade. Delicate and playful, Juliet’s witty concepts are inviting, while her careful attention to detail and soft stippling carries her work to the realm of awe. By balancing technical skill with extraordinary subject matter, her pieces are the unbelievable made manifest, allowing the viewer a glimpse toward deeper appreciation of the world we take for granted.

 

On the show’s inspirational narrative Juliet writes:

 

“There are a few overall messages I am trying to convey in this body of work. The first and inarguably most significant is the importance of these creatures being in our world. I am very passionate about ocean and animal conservation, and protecting the biodiversity that exists within the seas. Secondly, I feel that the show talks about being different, and how there is beauty in the unique. There is something wonderful to be said about being different, even when it can be hard to stay true to yourself. This show is about a bunch of sea creatures that felt there was more to life than they could find within the boundaries of their natural environment, so they chose to push forward and explore a completely new world that many thought to be impossible to navigate.”

 

OUT OF WATER opens Friday, July 1st, and is Juliet Schreckinger’s first solo feature at Arch Enemy Arts after being featured in numerous group exhibitions since our 2021 Spotlight Showcase.
