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.  Martin’s subject matter is primarily centered on human expression.  To quote Martin “ 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.”  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.
