Julie Moon – Mixed Bunch

Harrison Gallery + Online

September 5 through September 28, 2014

Mixed Bunch is a series of floral still lifes. Rather than being drawn from the banality of everyday experience or notions of kitsch, these works are drawn from the history of visual culture, specifically decorative and applied art. This collection of ceramic sculptures is the culmination of studio exploration that references various aspects of the natural world found in the decorative arts. A few of these influences include modernist painting, (i.e: Matisse,) textile design, graphic arts and of course, ceramic art. These influences are distilled through the process of making in the studio and is a way for me to satisfy impulses that focus on the relationship between craft and art, sculpture and painting.

Julie received her MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2010. She has exhibited extensively in Toronto since graduating from the Material Art and Design Program at the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2005. She has participated in numerous residencies and exhibitions within Canada and the United States. Recent exhibition venues include The Seattle Design Center, Pulse Art Fair with Narwhal Art Projects in Miami, the Katzman Kamen Gallery in Toronto, The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, and the Schein-Joseph Ceramic Art Museum in Alfred, New York. Recent residencies include The Anderson Ranch, Center for Ceramics in Berlin, and AIR Vallauris, France.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $157 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil  a investi 157 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
