Small, Quiet Efforts

A series of paintings that depict an abstracted view of one of the last truly wild areas of Wales, The Black Mountain.

Julie’s latest series of paintings examine universal design prevalent in the landscape, including structure, natural pattern and repetition. As a result the paintings give a sense of both distance and detail within the same frame.

Photographs are used to reconstruct images that appeal to her about landscape. It is the incidental elements within a landscape she is consistently drawn to, such as a patch of lichen or an unexpected mark found on the corner of a stone. The paintings isolate small sections of ground, foliage or water, cropped from the larger landscapes. Closing in on the abstract aspect of pattern combined with the reconstruction of images diverts the focus away from the traditional narrative of the subject matter, landscape.

Julie works on a number of paintings at one time and this allows her to transport strong elements from one piece to the next. Each painting shares some details with other works in the series to seek cohesion across the work.

The final images depict a push and pull between representation and abstraction and the resulting paintings re-create the landscape in an effort to express its essence.

Oriel Myrddin, Carmarthen

8 September - 3 November 2012

This July, an exhibition of new commissions by five emerging makers working at the forefront of applied art opened at Jerwood Space in London, the next stop on the UK tour will be Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen. Jerwood Makers Open 2012 brings together new works created by Nao Matsunaga, James Rigler, William Shannon, Louis Thompson and Silvia Weidenbach.
Taking the rare opportunity to lead with their imaginations rather than responding to a set brief, these makers have created ambitious new works in ceramics, design, glass, jewellery and mixed materials and will play with both scale and their chosen materials.

Jared Clark



Jared Clark from Utah. He's showing a big grid of chopped up and painted on found-art, mostly stuff he brought from Utah and mostly "country-kitchen" looking stuff. There's a humor and a weird sincerity to the work, as if he's trying to meld contemporary abstraction with my grandmother's decor.
