JULIA GREY

South Africa

The collaged and assemblaged world or wall, functions as a fantastical and idealised container for Self: a new world to inhabit that functions as a safe space to process as well as an antidote to life’s greyness or sadness. Inspired by analytical and archetypal psychology, I am interested in art as a vehicle to contain emotional processing. What I do is predominantly process-based: combining abandoned and scavenged materials as once seemingly disparate elements, into a new and meaningful whole.

I am constantly looking to create light worlds / a sense of wholeness / a depiction of a potential heaven / a space that counteracts darkness (both social and psychological). At large, I am interested in working with colour and emotion; far more interested in that which exists beyond the discursive mind (how that other space operates and how it can be reached) than I am with the mechanics of the intellect.

The music includes piano, some dabbling in Reason&Sonar and a field recording of the church bells I heard from my studio every morning.
