After Brunch Eye-Candy

Many of Julie Cockburn's images are manipulated, found photographs. These deeply mysterious, haunting and utterly intriguing pieces revisit memories and have nostalgia upon them. The subjects of these photographs are obviously unknown, which makes it acceptable to see its identity, primarily the facial area, completely manipulated.

Her crafted work points towards abstraction of details, in which she introduces embroidery and cutouts that she shapes into complex patterns. It is no doubt a tedious labor and her work strikes me as very personal and strangely endearing.

Artist: Julie Cockburn
