Death and regeneration are the subject matter of Julia’s work. Using a variety of media such as wood, paint, fabric, ordinary refuse and debris found at natural and urban sites, Julia explores the boundaries of deconstruction and reinvention. Through cross disciplines, she combines and contrasts the relationships of depth and volume, texture, color and form. Surfaces are built and later reduced or scraped away to leave visual fragments. Found materials are reconfigured, sanded or painted and then assembled into sculptural works. Julia’s processes and experimental approach are ever evolving; demonstrating her interest in “impermanence” and the Buddhist philosophy that all of life and matter are a continual becoming.
Julia recently launched a new website: juliahiggins.com.
