Artist Statement
Julie Weitz creates compound works that address the complex and entangled ways in which we picture others and ourselves. In new work, she combines geometric abstraction, drawn with graphite on black gouache, and digital prints of fragmented body parts.  The graphite’s reflective surface and the repetitive patterning create an optical illusion that contrasts the perceived depth, yet material flatness of the collaged photographs. Her drawings appear as face masks, body armor, and dissected portraits of the self.
