Paper Knots 
15 February - 15 March 2014

This piece is an exercise in expanding painting from a 2-dimensional expression to a deeper planar experience.  Using high contrast, high-vis colours that "pop" to make the painting more visually active in its contrast with the space around it.

Looking at this painting one might consider the work of American painter Frank Stella,  however for Julia these echoes of 20th century abstraction are less important than her personal quest in understanding painting, taking the angles and planar relationships of abstraction and rendering them "physically" to understand how form fills space. Only through making, can it then be painting with a knowing.
