Australia in 1965, Julia Roberts completed her
first degree in Arts at the University of Sydney
in 1986. After seven years working as a
disillusioned advertising copywriter in London,
she graduated again in 1995, this time with
honours from Chelsea College of Art and Design in
embarked upon her painting career and has since
exhibited widely in London and Sydney, in solo and
group shows. Her work is strong, vibrant, multi
layered and – in the case of her London and
Sydney street scenes – frenetic.
She has said
that she tries to ‘capture the experience’ of
her subject, creating an effect through a
combination of the figurative and the abstract,
that is at once vibrant and immediate.
moved to Singapore in 1998. In February 2000, she
participated in ‘An Affair to Remember’, a group
show celebrating the work of thirteen of
Australia’s finest young contemporary artists,
which was held at the Australian High Commission
focused on the local wet markets, again intent on
portraying the experience of it all: the hustle
and bustle, the movement, the colour, the sense of
much going on at the same time.
Profiles, her first solo show in Singapore,
Roberts takes on that most unique of all
Australian features – the bush. In tackling the
landscape of her native country, she is fulfilling
a long held personal ambition to confront what she
believes to be her most challenging subject.
She sets out
with the same aim however - to explore the
experience of looking at and being immersed in the
bush. As with her previous work, she succeeds in
capturing the ‘drama’ of it all - in one work
the trees shoot up straight and smooth, columns
connecting earth to sky, in the next they take on
almost human characteristics, twisting and
turning, sinewy and sinuous, entwining with each
other on the forest floor.
particularly interested in capturing the effect of
the light as it filters through leaves and peeling
barks, lending the trees an ethereal quality and
leaving the earth below dappled with shadow.
paints in her preferred medium of oil, using an
earthy palette, on panoramic boards she has had
custom made. The unusual format of these works
accentuates the breadth, depth and sheer primitive
vastness of her subject.
the exhibition, Julia will be conducting a series
of children’s workshops exploring the three
dimensional possibilities of landscape painting.
