Julie Corbet is a Byron Bay painter of expressive and often moody works, undertaken in a playful and meditative way. Like many painters working with abstraction, the process of painting and constant experimentation often transcend the subject, with an outcome that emerges rather than initially conceived.
Julie trained as an artist in the Northern Rivers over the past ten years and has exhibited locally since 2009. She has been successful in various local art prize shows.
Somewhere in Between
My work explores of the concept of imaginary space.
Abstract Art is mysticism.
Born out of emptiness, it explores intuition and instinct.
It is suggestive. It embraces uncertainty.
My painting suggest different states of consciousness.
It aspires to take the viewer beyond the superficial to discover something more universal.
In becoming aware of the infinite, we embrace the unknown.
We are freed from the constraints of everyday life.
We become part of something larger.
