|Julia's Art Path Paintings
Life for me is about layers. Layers of paint, pastel pigments, layers of sculpted lines across the canvas. Layers upon layers symbolizing the pain and traces of memories which accumulate with time. Each layer is embedded as a groove which continues to take on more layers. As an artist I try to express these layers through the artistic process with the mediums I use. Pastels offer a very free format in exploring the depth of these layers as each color blends with the next reflecting the new symbol of these layers. Points of Light is a mixed media painting painted in 2013 which reflects the many layers of mixed media paints capturing a stained glass effect with the geometric points of color dispersed throughout the painting.
