Exhibited in a group show at The Shop Gallery, Glebe, Sydney, July 2020.
Julie created these digital collages post the 19-20 summer of fires during Covid lockdown while the Black Lives Matter movement was arising and unfolding. In these works Julie imagines the life force speaking to and through our times expressed in reimagined forms of the dark feminine, or Dark Madonna.
Each piece is printed on silk and attached at top and base to a frame of Tasmanian oak finished with a black Japan varnish. The sides shy a few millimetres away from the wood allowing the silk to breathe.
A close up sample below shows the vibrancy of the prints.
These works are for sale as limited edition prints or assembled with a frame.
