Julie Gross Paintings

Themes in my art are the idea of place and the exploration of color in those landscapes. The interplay of color relationships is an interesting dynamic that I explore frequently. Recently I have been focused on the healing properties of color combinations. When painting I intuitively connect with healing energy, and place that intention in the work through color interactions, especially in the natural landscape. “Place,” is about communicating the essence of a place, not a photo-representation of a place, but through the use of linear qualities and color. I have recently experimented with having a variety of ways to display my work. Clothes, ornaments, and cards have been a fun way to experience the work.
