"The delicious pain of too much sunshine - if there's such a thing? I can't wait to get out there. But right now it hurts just a bit too much."
Almost exclusively portraying the female form, Julia Blackshaw aims to capture a moment of calm in her paintings, be it of a solitary hour or a figure deep in a dream. With an outline not dissimilar in approach to Alex Katz, Blackshaw gives us a limited backdrop, employing total focus on the women before us. As the viewer, we observe from afar, studying the female figures that seem lost in their own world.
