This piece was inspired by a recent trip to Ireland. I know there is none of that magical green indicative of Ireland, but this piece captures the feeling we had as night lifted and the new day began on our drive to Dublin. This work is multi-layered, highly textured and was created using brushes, knives, sticks, brayers and other tools. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted black, and it comes ready 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.
