Re-Appearance

“Re-Appearance”, mixed media, 107 x 110cm

 

My recent work looks at resurrection and rebirth, focusing on discarded objects found in our everyday surroundings. This theme is motivated by a near death experience and a second chance at life.

 

Resurrect

“Resurrect”, mixed media, 176 x 136 cm

 

My work incorporates past life experiences with contemporary art practice, experimenting will non-traditional methods and mediums, into unique works of art. I am intrigued by natures influence on man and the process of aging.

 

Journey of Life

“Journey of Life”, mixed media, 110 x 110 cm

 

Since an early age, I have been interested in deteriorating objects, the power of nature, recycling and creating art. Growing up on a farm and having little money for art supplies, I would make unusual artworks from anything I could find.

Most of my recent works involve mixed media techniques, combine with painting, drawing and assemblage. The mediums I use include pigments, soil, plant dyes, bark, rusted surfaces and acrylic paints.

I am inspired by artists such as Anselm Keiffer, Alberto Burri and Valerie Hegarty.

 

Spontaneous Abstraction

This year I will be completing my Masters of Visual Arts, attending a month artist in residency at the Newington Armoury in Sydney, having a solo exhibition and busy creating lots of art.

 

Layers of Life

My goals are to show my work through-out Australia and internationally one-day, but at present I am enjoying experimenting with non-traditional ways of creating unique works of art.

 

 

Comments

  1. Oh YES! All of the above, but especially the last image: It breaks from the rectangle/canvas format strongly and effectively. Congratulations–Life is good.

  2. This is a really compelling body of work Julie. It is paradoxically subtle yet bold. While I see the influence of Anselm Kieffer (and I mean that as a positivism), I fully appreciate that your work is original and innovative. Love the disintegrating canvas and the NDE/cyclical subtheme running through your work…
