Julia’s work begins outside in the natural world where she can familiarise herself with the inherent natural patterns that form and repeat.
Colour is applied as a reflection of the capricious mood of society, often earthy and with notes of red or blue to emphasise the temperament of the particular work, and the work is then continued in the studio.
Julia focuses on the physicality of mark making. The paintings go through a progression using different medias that span from oil paint to pen and ink.
Absorptions plays a key part in the process which allows different paint mediums to interact, generating an uncertainty which feels lively and energised.
