Julia Townsend is a contemporary Australian painter working predominantly in abstraction. Her work features bright colour fields, hard-edge geometric abstraction and graphic line work, that reference architecture and the digital age. Julia is interested in abstraction as creating an open image that is beyond the boundaries of rational thought. She uses the presence of colour as the primary means of expression, alongside other pictorial elements. The field of abstraction grants Julia total risk, freedom and discipline that considers line, shape, colour and mass and how they interact with one another.
Julia has studied fine art in both Australia and France, and has exhibited extensively.
