JULIA MCKENZIE

Julia McKenzie is a Somerset based artist whose work is primarily drawing based, layered with paper cuts and collage. The shop at "She Rose" currently features her prints and can also be purchased below. 

"Fragments of printed-paper, maps and other ephemera become entangled with delicate line and printed textures. Birds, plants, insects and objects combine to create a complex narrative. Drawing, making and printing is the stuff of exploration for me; my work celebrates the lost, the overlooked and the fragile. I combine elements that weave together the urban nature that lives alongside me with echoes of things, natural and manmade, that I find on my travels.  

I look for bones, plants, insects and birds. I like residues and husks of animals, plants or minerals that have survived long enough for me to find and examine. I celebrate the fragile, the forgotten, the broken and the beautiful."
