Stepping into Julie Brook Alexander’s studio, I realized that nearly everything has been altered from its original form. The drapes are hand painted, the sofa covered in collage and quilts. And on the walls and shelves are pieces of Julie’s personal history—paintings she’s made from her grandmother’s treasures, art books, theory books, dictionaries, and lots of collections—a grouping of fossils, rocks, kaleidoscopes, and a humorous quote pulled from her grandfather’s desk.
During a morning visit to Julie’s studio, she revealed how her most recent body of work, Parables, Perspectives and Epiphanies was right there in front of her, a natural next step. (spot | SPRING 2014 with Bevin Bering Dubrowski)
