JULIE BRETON ART | WORK IN PROGRESS

I am taking a breather from my regular art practice to experiment with new support and media. It is very exciting to work with translucent Yupo paper as well as rag paper which is proving to be more difficult. With these study, I am hoping to break through to a more intuitive style of painting.

I am purposely moving away from representational work all together to explore form and colour. I want to discover where intuition will take me as oposed to concern myself with aesthetics. You can follow my progress on Instagram below.

JULIE BRETON ART | BOTANICAL DRAWING

Inspired by Victorian Era Glasshouses I started to draw and paint on transluscent Yupo paper. I like the transparency I get with this support and how it reacts to the different media I experiment with. I create imaginary landsacpes and botanical worlds using charcoal, graphite, pastel, acrylic paint, ink and even collage.

Because the paper is translucent the artwork and it’s colours are finally revealed when backed with a neutral grey or colorful cardstock. You can follow this series progress on Instagram.

GLASSHOUSE ABSTRACT SERIES

JULIE BRETON ART | TROPICAL LUST

JULIE BRETON ART | TROPICAL LUST

I am intrigued by the changes that occurred at the beginning of the 20th century and how they brought about the birth of the modern era. I am also fascinated with old buildings. Even more if the building in question is decrepit, abandonned and left for the vegetation to regain it's stake on the land, as for Victorian era glasshouses. I get chills from seeing vintage photos of their opulent grandeur and the social status they came to represent. I imagine them filled to capacity with lush tropicals and rare botanicals competing for light.

JULIE BRETON ART | GLASSHOUSE SERIES - LUSH

JULIE BRETON ART | GLASSHOUSE SERIES - LUSH

I can't help but think that at the same time, the growth of the industrial revolution was bringing upon new ideology and cultural shifts. And so with time, these impressive structures became a thing of the past. This artwork series depicts the polarization of old and new ideas with lush botanicals surounded by unexpected shapes and colours. You can follow my progress on Instagram below.
