Julie Harper

The pressure placed on society to conform to an ‘idealised’ body type has been central to Julie’s recent working practice. With the purpose of breaking down some of the inherent cultural and social preconceptions surrounding the body, much of the work questions the refashioning of the body to better assimilate to contemporary social ideals of what beauty is thought to be today.

TEXTILE PRACTICE
As a result of previous studies in dentistry Julie has gained a deepened understanding of the qualities inherent to a wide range of materials. This combined with an acquired level of technical expertise, now gives her the confidence to push boundaries and go beyond traditional textile materials and processes. She is able to respond both intellectually and artistically to topical issues demonstrating that ideas can be conveyed conceptually, whilst still being process led.
