Julia Bland’s large scale works incorporate painting and weaving, developing the structures and patterns that bind disparate elements into a whole. While the compositions incorporate structures that imply pure or timeless forms, color and materiality evoke an embodied visual experience. Through weaving, cutting, sewing, dying, and painting, the surface becomes a visible record of her evolving, multi-faceted process.
