Julie Unruh is interested in identity construction and particularly in the disconnect between personal and shared experience. She utilizes realism, but her paintings also explore the role of the viewer in the creation of coherent images.
For the last year I’ve been working on and thinking about
pretty landscape paintings with industrial subject matter.
The working title is Pretty Industrial and the idea came to me
while I was an artist-in-residence at CAC Troy, New York.
Site-specific , happening installations that incorporate ephemeral sculpture with photography and painting with cathartic, participatory, collaborative, destructive elements drawing on the psychology of mixing natural and urban landscapes.
I am a multi media artist. My work is kinetic and i have the wind,the sun and other elements play a
role in my work. I also do 3 dimensional video projections that requires a whole room. There is an
element of fragility in my work .
