Painting Pots

 

The depiction of timeless but essential kitchenware is an enduring tradition. Julia finds painting still life the perfect subject with which to study form and colour juxtaposition. With a selection of muted tones she works until the paintings take on a time worn character, scraping back to past history within the layers.

 

With careful placement Julia constructs the spatial tension and relationships between objects to create a quiet, contemplative narrative.

 

The term Wabi-sabi represents a Japanese aesthetic and a Japanese world view. It means finding beauty in imperfection, modesty, intimacy or austerity. Julia likes to think of the objects in her still life paintings akin to such an aesthetic, a bit faded and quietly satisfying.

 

Julia Cooper studied Fine Art and Interior Design eventually working with the Cornwall National Trust. She has regular solo and group exhibitions in Bath and Cornwall.
