Julia Cooper: Making Marks
31 March - 24 April 2017
Living on the rugged Cornish coast, Julia Cooper is constantly inspired by her surrounding environment. Exploring the coastline, she enjoys finding sun bleached and weathered marine debris, vintage boat timbers and jetsam on the beaches. She often utilizes these materials to create abstract constructions. Julia’s landscapes and coastal paintings often emerge out of the thought processes and physical discoveries of surface textures made when creating the three-dimensional works. Whether creating three-dimensional constructions or paintings, she becomes completely engrossed in the job of adjusting colours, or shapes until the whole looks right. Much of this side of her painting involves scraping back to layers underneath to add texture and visible history of the making.
Julia Cooper trained in Fine Art as well as Interior Design and has exhibited her work widely in the United Kingdom. She holds regular solo and mixed exhibitions in Cornwall and Bath.
