Julia Watts

  "After a period of time focusing on portraiture, my current imaginative work combines poetry with the unusual in a dusty, parallel world. These are paintings that reflect my love of myth, magic and all things other worldly.

I work exclusively in oil paint, developing the painting through the application of many thin layers; this process allows the composition to take on its own life and luminosity as time progresses.

   A selection of painters from the Northern Renaissance, Surrealist and Symbolist eras have inspired me over the years; their enigmatic imagery evoking perceptions of timelessness, emotion and ambiguity that I strive to embody in my own work.

   Ultimately, I look for the soul of things by representing their outward appearances in an allegorical manner."
