“I will not be determined by my illness, yet be more creative in spite of it.” — Julie Edwards
Trying to come to grips with a debilitating diagnosis, impressionist artist Julie Edwards (1970, UK) prefers to look beyond her current “imperfections”.
Inspired by experiences and deeper meanings to daily occurrences, images for a new painting will simply come to her. But before placing a canvas on the easel, Julie goes through a series of careful preparations. Very much a cognitive process, she explores journaling and sketching. But when transferring it all to the canvas, a whole new experience transpires. While layering the paints, the work evolves. Julie can lose herself in the painting as she goes through her poignant process. What seemed mere minutes were factually hours. Emotions tangible; at times raw, or ever so soft and subtle, Julie masters and controls the translation to the canvas. Yet able to add their own experiences, Julie leaves room for the viewer to be part of the conversation.
This specially curated collection of Julie’s work provides the viewer with a very personal look into the artist’s world.
