About

For artist Julie Green’s first solo exhibition at Upfor, more than one hundred sheets of mulberry paper, each laboriously hand-painted in sumi ink with thousands of sea shells, will cover the gallery walls. This process-based drawing (begun in 2011) serves as a backdrop for a series of paintings that employ airbrushed egg tempera, an unusual and challenging technique, and ceramics. Drawing inspiration from Zen calligraphy, Japanese ceramics and the Pattern and Decoration movement, Green’s work meditates on the ocean, consumption, the color blue, and airbrushed imagery.
