JULIE POULSEN | From the 'Menu Board' series:

"The original paintings were Menu Board style lists of party-related words and lolly choices: suckers, bonbons, false teeth, all sorts, freckles and more. An explosion of assorted sweets coat the underlying text of Tea party#2 and #3.

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
