Painting Pots
The depiction of timeless but essential kitchenware, with their alluring forms is an old tradition. Julia finds painting still life the perfect subject with which to study form and colour juxtaposition.
With a selection of muted tones she works until the paintings take on a time worn character, scraping back paint to its underlying history within layers. With careful placement Julia constructs spatial tension and relationships between objects to create a quiet, contemplative narrative.
The term Wabi-Sabi represents a Japanese aesthetic and a Japanese world view. It means finding beauty in imperfection, modesty, intimacy or austerity. Julia likes to think of the objects in her still life paintings akin to such an aesthetic, a bit faded and quietly satisfying.
