Julee works on a number of different works at any one time, she also works across different collections. She investigates sculptural, textile, and collage techniques and she sways between minimalism design and maximalist pattern. “I think of each work as an ongoing experiment into the use of dried paint as a material,” says Julee.
Challenging the mainstream view of painting
Julee thinks of her art as rebelling against what is expected. She is an artist without brushes using paint that has dried before use. “I would like people to remember me as someone who challenged the mainstream view of the painting,” she adds.
Striking, unique, and highly contemporary art style
Julee doesn’t like labels and boxes where art, apparently, neatly fits. What links her various artworks together is simply the use of dried paint as the sole material, therefore, each series can seem vastly different. “If forced to label it, I would say striking, unique, and highly contemporary,” says Julee.
Concepts of instability and invisibility
Julee has learned over the years that the best art is authentic, it is not created to sell or to fulfill a specific market. Moreover, she thinks that art is a vocation, and not a job. ”I often explore the concepts of instability and invisibility in my work, usually in subtle ways that speak volumes to me,” she adds.
