Unusual canvas formats draw immediate attention to the vibrant and colorful compositions in Julia’s paintings. Adopting peculiar circle and semi-circle canvas as part of her artworks, she steps out of the traditionally used form.
This noteworthy attempt of replacing the ordinary square shape with less common forms, opens new perspectives in artistic practice. Canvas is the foundation, the basics, that’s where you start. Change the foundation, and the artist’s thinking will change.
