Julia Poulton | North Yorkshire
I have always felt a strong connection with nature, and this for many years has been the main source of inspiration for my work. Yet the urge to focus on process and use paint to express my 'internal' world, has latterly become intrinsic to my practice. My paintings have thus become more fluid and abstract over time, though references to landscape may still emerge as a result of this approach. Through exploring a deeper sense of self, I have also been developing a series of works incorporating the abstract figure.
I work mainly in oils on canvas or board. With a passion for colour, I am interested in creating depth, texture and contrasting tones. I invite the viewer to find their own resonance within my paintings, whether this be through a sense of mood, place or simply engaging with colour.
