The Nevica Project is proud to announce an upcoming exhibition by the Australian artist Jools. It will be a great opportunity for the public to preview and purchase from her newly created body of work.
The colorful mixed media works are a multi-layered pastiche of urbanism, pop culture and references to art history. Jools’ raw aesthetic is fascinating to explore as she arranges disparate images of inner-city iconography including graffiti, brickwork and signage among swaths of vivid color. “For me,” explains Jools, “every city street is a different visual feast and the combinations, interpretations and possibilities for them are simply endless.” Recently Jools has been combining her mixed media paintings with installation elements of film, music and neon lights in order to bring her visions out into real space and allow audiences to experience her creative world in a more tangible way.
An avid traveler, Jools has lived in France, Greece, and the Caribbean before settling down in her native Australia. Though raised in the city, she now works from her studio on a picturesque farm in rural Victoria. Jools’ burgeoning art career has been strengthened by private and corporate sales.
Jools (Julia Bland) was recently featured in a NBC DATELINE feature story entitled "A Step Too Far".
