Classical Painting - “Split Screen” (oil on panel, 26 x 32 in.) by Juliette Aristides
“Split Screen” (oil on panel, 26 x 32 in.) by Juliette Aristides

Juliette Aristides is one of the world’s leading experts in the “lost art” of the classical painting style — a technique that captures the purity and deep emotion within the human form like no other can.

On “Split Screen”

“This is a painting of my studio window at Gage Academy of Art, where I have spent so many hours and years of my life,” Juliette said. “At the start of the pandemic we sheltered in place while schools, churches, and museums sat empty. Eventually I went back to school to paint in the building – alone.

“At first it was eerie and disturbing but I was grateful to leave my house and have somewhere to go. I was disciplined about painting and the routine helped me through the summer. This studio is about one mile from the location of the CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. It felt like being in the eye of a storm.”
