JULIE'S NEXT EXHIBITION
Julie’s next series of art works are inspired by Nicolas De Stael, a French painter of Russian origin known for his use of a thick impasto and his highly abstract landscape painting. Julie's new exhibition will feature a collection of her favorite seagulls highlighting the in between space of what we know and what we don’t know. What we can’t see doesn’t mean it’s not there. What if something is there in a form just not recognizable to us … yet?
Nicolas De Stael was always looking for his own way. He was 100% an individualist. He was fascinated by the in between (le entre) … what lies between two fields… the figurative field and the abstract field. A realist, he wanted to reinvent reality. Have new conversations. Tell a new story. Create an expression of a new idea. A new vocabulary of art. After Julie's extraordinary seagull experiences,that you can read about in
'Seagulls on the Ganges', Julie Stafford wants us to have a different conversation about death and afterlife.
