Artist's Statement

Julia Kennedy-Bell is a Sydney based artist. Kennedy-Bell has developed her own personal language through the use of mark-making and colour, exploring abstraction and colour as three-dimensional form through drawing and painting.  Her current body of work presents three-dimensional paintings as paper sculptures, installations and paintings where abstraction is presented as occupying both two-dimensional and three-dimensional space. The fusion of oppositions between what is intuitive and rational, of senory and perception presents a series of formal problems that create a kind of individual logic that is pursued through process and materials.
