Julie’s study of space is rooted in the understanding of landscape as both an encounter and an image. It’s in the balancing act of grounding and departure—always looking for the light through the tangle of life. It’s in decay, not as destruction, but as catalyst: a signpost for renewal, growth and reclamation. And it’s in honesty, about creating a portrait of landscape as it is: something apprehended and unknowable. Paint is the medium she uses to formalize the possibility of a place—a place alive, mutable and shared, a character in our collective unconscious.
“I can’t un-see the beauty of Earth in its natural state, and memory, dream or spiritual connection inform a beautiful longing for such spaces. I feel it’s important to portray that beauty, to think about all we need to preserve for future generations. The time I spend in nature is where I ground myself in that beauty, studying forms and qualities of light, but it plays an equal role to the time I spend away, dreaming, writing and responding to memories of natural spaces. The time I spend in reflection is the ingredient needed to steer me away from straight rendering of nature.”
