September- October 2016
Julia Forrest is a Brooklyn based artist. She works strictly in film and prints in a darkroom she built within her apartment. Her own art has always been her top priority in life and in this digital world, she will continue to work with old processing. Anything can simply be done in photoshop, she prefer to take the camera, a tool of showing reality, and experiment with what she can do in front of the lens.
“I pose nymph like women in the landscape. By using mirrors, reflections, and forced perspective, I create an illusion in front of the lens. Although they appear delicate and fragile, it is obvious they posses a mysterious power to move the landscape at will. They change shape and scale, picking up parts of the landscape or completely transforming it.”
