Living near the ocean and always fascinated by it, this piece is a little surrender to the serenity of water and its mesmerizing and healing quality. This is a very layered work, which adds to the depth and texture, with an overall smooth feeling. The painting was created using brushes, knives and other tools. It is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges and comes wired to hang.

Getting to Know Julie

Julie Weaverling’s abstract paintings are organic yet deliberate. She approaches her work with a well-developed idea, then begins applying paint. Julie experiments with transparent and opaque layers that metaphorically represent the human condition. She focuses on the idea of compartmentalizing: humans separate their work from their secrets, their friends from their traumas, creating many layers to the self. “What is hidden is sometimes more revealing than what is seen,” Julie says. Through the scraping and layering of color, the artist asks the viewer to consider what lies underneath.
