Julie Galante - Open Studio
Venue: 1F, Room 102, 3331 Arts Chiyoda
Julie Galante will be presenting new work produced during her residence at 3331 Arts Chiyoda in a one-day open studio. Having spent her time in Tokyo investigating the visual landscape of her new surroundings, Julie has reworked photographic records of the people and places around her to create a series of new mixed-media artwork.
Julie Galante is an American artist who has spent the past 10 years moving from country to country. Her artwork explores the visual aspects of these places that she calls home for finite amounts of time. Through observation, interpretation, and reproduction she seeks to understand the nature of these cities, their inhabitants, and her relationship to them.
Julie has exhibited her work in the US, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and China; her paintings are held in private collections on six continents. As of January 2013 she lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, having relocated after five years in Munich, Germany.
