About the Book
Justine Roland-Cal is a self-taught artist who has been painting since the early 90’s. She began to make art at a time in her life when the action of expression through painting provided a new direction and form of interaction with the world around her. She has since developed a body of work both figurative and abstract which identifies many aspects of her own life, her daily encounters and her political voice. She makes work that explores very diverse aspects of living. Many of her paintings represent a personal response to what concerns her as a woman and a humanitarian. She has a striking use of colour, which prevails in huge ecstatic canvases of abstract expressionism and insightful documentation. Justine Roland-Cal continues to experiment both in her chosen medium of painting and now in black and white photography. Her photography is a collection of spontaneous portraits of unusual characters and street documentation often concentrating on alternative society.
