Julie Goulding paints with oils,and acrylics, on stretched canvas. Her way of looking often has a surreal edge and a focus on spatial relationships seen through geometric forms.
Subject matter is that of naturalism and narrative which overlays the design aesthetics of abstract composition.
Her paintings express the need to make connections with the beauty of a place, the need to mirror what we see and feel when looking at the architecture of the created landscape, and at the given landscapes of nature with its beautiful skies, its bodies of water, and its changing seasons.
The paintings often imply a narrative of journeys and suggest the fleeting nature of our one life when contrasted with our sense of timelessness which is felt through nature, and history, and which we perhaps desire through our complex beliefs based upon faiths.
