Redcliffe Revisited – Julie Purcell

January 22, 2019 - February 24, 2019

Stage Door Gallery, Redcliffe Entertainment Centre

Mon-Fri 9 am to 4 pm.

This artistic survey of memory rich terrain presents familiar Redcliffe locations with a subjective twist. Julie creates a virtual pathway to the past by referencing subtle scenic influences from the video games she enjoyed as a child in present-day depictions of her home town.

In doing so Julie creates collectible souvenirs that transcribe abstract feelings of “place” into tangible form, reflecting upon the way a town embeds itself forever in a resident’s soul. Centred on memory, pop culture and nostalgia, Julies practice is a playful exchange between painting and design.

Redcliffe Revisited is a series of plein air oil paintings and textile based responses the artist has documented her revisitation of sites and moments of significance – real and remembered – from a childhood in Redcliffe.

Julie Purcell is an emerging local artist with a home town focus. A former design and production co-ordinator in the not-for- profit sector she is a creative professional with a passion for supporting art in the Redcliffe community.

She joined Moreton Bay Arts Council after recently completing a bachelor of Fine arts with Honours through Queensland College of Art. Her practice fuses painting, textile printing and fashion design to express suburban spirit.
