Julie Jablonski

"I have tried to do what is true and not ideal."
- Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
 
The Artist
Julie Jablonski is curious about the weight of navigating the 21st century, and how we walk around in our shoes in the current time.  A background in martial arts and psychology steer an exploration of balance (literal and figurative), ego, reason, and how we respond to forces internal and external to ourselves.  She merges traditional oil painting practice with sculpture and experimental process and materials to create lush visual imagery intersected with conceptual puzzles and contemplations, and seasoned with a pinch of absurdity.  Themes of consumerism, media culture, technology, history, nature, and one’s relationship to self and others are mined for understanding of how we put one foot before the next, or not.
