New Zealand born artist Julia Parkinson, makes limited edition prints that cross the boundaries between photography and painting. Intertwining many disciplines, the final result is one that is highly choreographed. Real scenes seem strangely two-dimensional. Painted human forms fade in and out of backgrounds, as though their environment has merely borrowed them to express itself.
Driving the distortions, is Parkinson's interest in how our state of being changes whenever our personal history intersects with new external circumstances. The transient subjects of State can never be fully distinguished from the environments they find themselves in. They dissolve into saturated, dreamlike landscapes, and suggest that we are only ever on the verge of becoming who we are. She explores the unnamed, unnameable bodies that line our interiors, the people behind our faces.
