Julie V Garner's picture

I am a self taught artist rooted primarily in collage and photography. My main body of work is a series of woven photographic tapestries depicting the built environment, primarily urban and industrial. I’m drawn to historical structures that demonstrate the hand of humans and the passage of time. These can be seen on my website along with a description of how they're made. Another series include photo-collages of stairs and fire escapes and the most recent is of hand painted flowers arranged into abstracted, fantasy bouquets. I'm interested in employing photography to create dynamic images in which abstraction is utilized to slow down the act of seeing and, hopefully, more deeply engage the senses.
