We are pleased to announce an exhibition FIGURES by Julia Peintner on September 23 (Sat) and 24 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Julia Peintner is a painter and print-maker, living and working in London, UK. She graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2015 and has exhibited in group exhibitions in the UK, Europe, US and Japan. Her work is figurative and surreal. Topics that come up in her recent work are group dynamics and seemingly common scenarios of everyday life.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
The centrepiece of my images is always the figure; as an individual or in a community, still or in motion. For the pieces that I will be showing I was interested in doing two things: looking into how I can use colour and gradients in my work but more importantly, experimenting with the format e.g. the quantity of canvases/printing blocks next to each other, transforming a single person into a group/community.
