CATHY JULIEN - ARTIST STATEMENT
Kapunda is the major focus throughout this exhibition. These paintings have been inspired by my special connection with people and distinct places that have evoked inspiration while living in this community.
I am in the process of completing a Batchelor of Fine Art and Design at Adelaide College of the Arts. This exhibition features a culmination of the works I have completed through the last year and a half of my Degree, which I have six months left to complete.
I have found the learning journey to be a fantastic artistic stepping stone. I have gained many skills and interesting ideas that I am now looking forward to sharing with everyone when working as an Artist within the community.
On graduation I intend to develop my own studio to continue my personal art practice.
I have a particular interest in facilitating peoples artistic journey, in particular I would like to start with some exciting and integrative workshops using the great variety of art materials and mediums I now have experience in using. I would delight in the opportunity for developing community projects to enable artistic exploration on a community level. A focus on fun and connection with others through artistic expression is what I hope to create into my art practice in the future.
I do hope you enjoy my first exhibition. Cathy Julien.
