Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A striking work that weaves one painting through two others resulting in a rich, warm, textile like artwork that subtly ripples over the canvas. A stunning piece that will definitely be a talking point. Named for the medieval English name for hazelnut which I felt was apt for a painting that uses the ancient craft technique of weaving and is predominantly in shades of chocolate and reddish brown.

The work is secured to canvas. It is fitted with D rings and wire for immediate hanging.On the front you will find my initials. On the back is my signature, title and year.
This painting is registered with the NRAA (National Registry for Australian Artists). Details of this registration are provided as well as a Certificate of Authenticity.
 
THE INTERWEAVE COLLECTION
Highly unique paintings that emulate the stunning drape of textiles. This series combines my love of craft with my passion for painting. Warp and weft threads are cut from a variety of paintings that exist only to be deconstructed and then reconstructed as a new whole. Finished works are made entirely from paint with no other material present.

BIOGRAPHY

Born in the UK, Julee settled in Australia in 2005 after spending the previous 17 years moving internationally many times. Her life has been a patchwork of cultures. This plays out in her desire to deconstruct her work.

Julee has been a full-time artist for many years achieving international recognition for her work in mosaic art and her authorship of the book Sculptural Secrets for Mosaic (Schiffer Publishing, USA). Julee has exhibited widely in Australia as well as New York and Italy. She has been selected as a Finalist for three Art Prizes in the last 12 months. Her artworks are held in private collections in Australia, the UK, the USA, Sweden, Austria, and Canada.

Julee holds a BFA (Sculpture and Painting) from Curtin University, Perth. She also has diplomas in Interior Design and Colour Therapeutics.

ARTIST STATEMENT
Can paint lead an alternative life, one where it does not need the canvas?

The desire to free paint and allow it independence is paramount in my art practice. My experiences of repeated international relocations feed into the way I approach my work. Breaking ties, rebuilding support systems as well as feelings of invisibility and instability are foremost considerations.

I create original paintings quickly without brushes, allowing the paint to paint itself. I regard my work as just beginning when the paint is dry. I exploit the inherent flexibility in the dried material to investigate textile techniques such as quilting, layering, and weaving. This enables a blurring of boundaries between art and craft, painting, and sculpture.

House paint is often considered out of place in the world of Fine Art. It is in unfamiliar territory and this attracts me to it. I aim to coax this overlooked material from its humble origins of surface decoration into a world of elegant dimensionality. My ultimate goal, however, is to generate conversation about the nature of painting and to challenge expectations of what a painting can be.
