From above and head on

Georgetown, Gouache and Acrylic Collage on Watercolor Paper; 44 1/2" x 59"; 2008"Julia Hensley uses an invented perspective informed by cubism, pixilation, quilts, and Mondrian's grids, in which the city is seen as if from above and head on simultaneously. Her paintings and collages create an interesting friction between surface and illusory space. While her work [in this show] is derived from Northwest places, it also exists in an ultimately abstract, imaginary realm."
