  • Artist Statement

    Julie McConaghy makes semi abstract oil paintings and mixed media drawings that reference the natural world. Ongoing themes of her work are the landscape and water. Julie combines traditional oil paints to build up textures and translucent layers in her paintings that become almost sculptural in their finished state. Her drawings also possess a 3- dimensional quality developed through the playful mixing of a variety of materials including torn paper, gouache, ink, acetate and oil stick.

     

    Julie has been included in important exhibitions, including the Dobell Prize for Drawing, the NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize and the ANL Maritime Art Award. She has participated in group and solo shows, including at Charles Hewitt Gallery and Gaffa Gallery.

     

    Julie lives and works in Sydney.
