© 2019  Juliet Jaeger

Juliet Jaeger is a multifaceted artist from Milwaukee, WI. Her visual arts studio is in among a cluster of converted factory buildings in the Bayview neighborhood.

“Hey look, it’s The Sticker Lady!” So named by Juliet’s local reputation for creating small, fun things to make some cash (often by recycling junk): stickers, magnets, tiny hats, custom painted wearables like shoes, the list goes on. Making these items occasionally informs her studio art usually in the form of paper collage and in the use of found materials.

Since 2010, Juliet participates in improvisational dance as a member of the internationally performing dance troupe, Tamarind Tribal.  

 

Juliet is an enthusiastic fan of music and intermittent musician. A long time listener of Milwaukee’s WMSE 91.7FM, a listener supported freeform music radio station broadcasting from MSOE, she credits for her eclectic musical taste to this station. She is over the moon to be a volunteer DJ at WMSE, starting in 2016, where she now programs a three hour weekly show of world music both traditional and disruptive.

 

Recently, Juliet has created album art and provides live video projection for musical performances of CRLSS.

Sapere aude.  Scientific knowledge is my fundamental inspiration.  Visual art is part of an exploration of life, geology, and ultimately, patterns.  The patterns emerge from experimentation with shape, color, fractal geometry and mutation.  The repetition of a mark with a short list of rules creates a dynamic form that is homogeneous to the forms and structures found in nature. 

Life is a puzzle. I consider my drawings puzzles. From my perspective, the finished image is similar to a finished crossword puzzle. Starting marks are made and I build out following an algorithm to ease the burden of decision making.  The drawing grows until I run out of space or the overall shape is pleasing.  Many variables shape the outcome: depending on which way I travel as I draw, where errors occur and my color choices; even with the same starting point, the result will always be unique.  

Absorbed in improvisation. Improvisation is the thread that links together everything I do: art, dance, music, radio, crafts and solutions in small everyday puzzles. It is the place where focus and creativity operate at their full potential. This place has its own flow, speed and has no regard for daily schedules and expectations. Existing here is fundamental to my drawings and abstract painting. To extemporize in anything requires a delicate grip on control; to flow from one tiny decision to the next without getting stuck in deliberation over one choice.
