Juliet Holland Signed 2001 “Sutra 26” Mixed Media Wall Assemblage


A 2001 mixed media wall assemblage titled Sutra 26 by American artist Juliet Holland (1937-2017). Signed, dated, and titled verso, this work is constructed of a wooden box. The lower portion is black with dark blue circles outlined with white circular lines. The middle portion is white with intentional distressing and gashes. The top is a medium brown color with additional gashes. 

Born in Wellesley Hills and Duxbury, Massachusetts, Juliet Holland (1937-2017) moved on from her life as a suburban wife, mother, and social hostess and began her art practice in the 1960s. Holland’s adult life was spent between two chosen homes; for more than 35 years, she lived between an apartment at Bleeker and Broadway in New York City and a tiny fisherman’s cottage in Saugatuck Shores, Connecticut. Her technique mirrored her dual landscapes and incorporated rich layers of sand, paints, clay, powders, metallics, and natural elements, which were built up, then scratched and scraped back down, creating layers — evoking time. 

Holland showed in over one hundred one-person and group exhibitions between 1981 and 2018. Her work is held in museums such as the San Antonio Museum of Modern Art, Reading Public Museum, as well as a number of corporate and private collections. Holland was a co-founder of Art Bridge, a program that established an artist exchange between Japan and the United States for twelve years. In addition to being an artist and businesswoman, she worked as a curator of several exhibitions and was on the board of directors of Lamia Ink!, a non-profit organization dedicated to the arts.
