January 2006: Julie Martin Wall Relief
Julie Martin will be presenting a series of wall reliefs. The medium she uses is Cold Cast Bronze with a patina. Martinâ€™s subject matter is primarily centered on human expression. To quote Martin â€œ I am engrossed with the possibilities of taking moments that are usually personal but are experience universally and translating these moments into three dimensional forms.â€ This series also explores human intimacy, with as few details as possible so that the finished work becomes sort of a visual puzzle as to what the person is doing: an arm on a shoulder, a hand on a waist, two hands intertwined in front of a torso. The obvious purpose of these sculptures is to be beautiful and yet also involve the intellect of the viewer in a way that is satisfying.
