"What words can’t say
Opening: Wednesday 29 August, 6 - 8pm
Dates: 29 August - 22 September 2018
‘What words can’t say’ is a series of paintings which investigate motifs for connection. Populated with people, place or space the paintings may be representational or melt to evocative abstractions. Affectionate and tender, these are paintings which explore companionship in its many forms.
Julia Stewart’s paintings evolve from intimate reflections of the everyday and seek to imbue the ordinary with status .With subjects ranging from family, friends, house and hometown, Stewart brings both a simplicity and sophistication to her subject. A love of paint, materials and a rich generosity of spirit are at the core of Stewart’s practice.
Julia Stewart grew up in Daylesford and now spends her time between Daylesford and Melbourne. Stewart completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2016. Stewart has since had two solo exhibitions titled ‘Slow Going’ and ‘What Remains’ at 167 Queens Parade and Rubicon ARI.
