Julie Hedrick : Rome

The R&F Gallery is pleased to present Julie Hedrick: ROME.  The paintings of Kingston artist, Julie Hedrick, are deceptive. Hedrick paints atmospheric auras that, at first glance, appear to be very simple, minimal fields of color. But variations in tone and her use of impastos give the work a complex, veiled, glowing appearance, where colors and light appear to be shifting, vibrating and transforming within the picture space.

Light emanates from the depth of Hedrick’s paintings, pulling the viewer in and surrounding them with the energy of a spiritual place. The artist reminds us of our connection with the universe and our inner selves by inviting viewers to slow down, reflect, and re-energize. For her first show at the R&F Gallery, Hedrick has created a new series of frescoes inspired by Rome.

Julie Hedrick was born in Toronto, Canada and now lives in Kingston, New York. She is a Graduate of the Painting Studio Program, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Since 1990, Hedrick has been doing double-duty as a painter and a poet, often collaborating with her musician husband. Her work is represented by Nohra Haime Gallery in New York City, and is exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Canada.
