Julia Pomeroy’s practice elevates narratives surrounding rich energies emitted from contemporary figures within psychologically charged spaces. By using complimentary colour axis’, and techniques to convey glowing atmospheres, her paintings contrast the easily missed beauty and nauseating repetitiveness of our everyday. Constructing dreamscapes, parallel realities of our existents to question familiar contemporary habits, invigorate our seemingly mundane every day and face our decaying quotidian and failing conditioned routines. Inspired by the colour palettes from the impressionists and fauve movement, Pomeroy uses strong colours to build contrasting lights and darks to communicate un-immediate thoughts and feelings while piecing together the stories presented in my settings. Capturing unguarded states of mind, recognising the familiar and often unknown in our revolving lives, and positive and negative reactions to the spaces we utilise. Artists who Influence her practice are Caroline Walker, Jenna Gibbon, Chloe Wise, Rachel Jones, Doron Langberg, Edvard Munch, Joaquin Sorolla and Pierre Bonnard.
