Julia Rymer Artist Reception:
Friday, February 21. 4 - 7 pm
Analog emerged out of a need to slow down, to simply work and be. It takes inspiration from Julia’s interactions with nature - from examining the minutia of pebbles and seeds to, experiencing the vastness of mountains and oceans - to inform the shapes, color interactions and designs.
About the Artist
Contemporary life is fast, and electric, and she often feels as if she’s been propelled down a highway at 70 miles an hour because she has.
By engaging with the natural world through abstract painting, her work asks if art needs to reflect our digital society, or if it can exist outside of it, in connection with nature; in a sense - "analog" in a digital world. This series invites contemplation and reflection on viewers' human experience in the contrasting natural and digital spheres of our lives.
