33 Bones
Julie's most recent body of work, titled 33 Bones, explores the tension and fine line between fragility and stability. Having undergone a series of physical transformations due to necessary surgeries, Julie has had to re-examine her physical strengths and limitations. Painted paper weavings encompass a parralel representation of these strengths and limitations. 33 Bones represent 33 variations on a spine - 33 represents the amount of bones that make up our spine.

Waltz Paintings
Julie's Waltz series was inspired by trips to Vienna (Austria), the city of waltzes. There she found antique “Walzen”, which are structured paint rollers that were used instead of wallpaper in the 60’s, 50’s and earlier. Incidentally, the word “walzen” as a verb also means to dance the waltz. So, creating a body of work inspired by, and with the help of “waltzes” and “walzen” became a series wherein Julie combines brushes, hands and walzen to create multi-layered and very textural pieces. Their Old World charm and warm colors suggest a different epoch, and while some can come across to the viewer as quirky and whimsical, others are perfectly decorative in their stillness and calm.
