JULIE POULSEN | From the 'Coastal Series' series:

"The landscape of Far North Queensland is both contemplative and provocative, to stand in a particular space is to acknowledge its individual sentiments. There is often serenity but seldom utter silence. It is the presence of birds within the landscape that teases inspiration.

The beginning of 2000 was a shift in focus from easel painting and return to a process started in Art College; the assemblage of paintings through stitching. These signature works required a disproportionate amount of combinable canvas and calico, all decorated with distinctive marks and surface treatment of cunningly conforming patterns, colours and imagery. This abundance of fabric guaranteed a surplus of useable remnants. 21 years later and these classic offcuts from different series including Menu Boards, Chalk Boards, Aeroplane Jelly, Landscape and figurative works come out of storage to be given a new life as quintessential bags."  Julie Poulsen
