This piece represents the age that we live today. Assailed by technology that promises to do things better, faster, cleaner and with a smaller footprint than we ever thought possible, we seem to be moving into a place that seems to benefit yet diminish some aspects of our lives. It is a strange and confusing dichotomy that often pits generations against each other especially if one comes from a first generation home. The artwork visually communicates the positive and negative effects of technology while emphasizing that what binds humanity together is what is what grows from the heart and whispered in the spiritual realm. When heart, spiritual, human will and technology come together, we become creatures of virtue.
Influenced by her favorite writers, science fiction concept artists, film directors and architects, Juliana’s artwork is high on imagination, composition, and detail. She excels at colour and composition. Juliana also moderates an online Instagram community called Discover Prisma where she curates, mentors and teaches principles of design to people all over the world. Juliana draws her inspiration from life, nature, narratives and stories in the literary and digital world. She can be found hidden away in coffee shops observing people and photographing curiosities.
