"Inner Journeys" april - june 2013

Born in 1977 in Canada. Lives and works in New York.

In the complex artworks of richly textured paintings and sculptures, Julia Dault is testing the limits of her own physical strength revealed in her experiments with various materials and utensils. By pushing the boundaries of her practice, using unexpected, unusual and sometimes even trashy materials, such as pleather, silk and spandex instead of canvas as the painting's ground, Dault is considered to be a daring and adventurous artist. Experimentation is one of the keys to Dault’s art; she is constantly looking after new connections between her hand and the surface of the painting. Her textured canvasses can be seen as multi-layered illusions that play with our sense of depth, by both removing and re-applying paint.
