Julia Stewart and Cameron Gill

Julia Stewart and Cameron Gill are interested in the challenges and subtleties that emerge in painting ‘from life’. While photography can act as an excellent aid to painters, there are pitfalls. In painting from photos, an artist can readily get caught up in merely reproducing all, or parts of, the image as it appears in the photograph. Stewart and Gill would like to explore the capacity for a painting to signify space, in order to transport the viewer into the intimate, subjective space that a painter creates when making an image.
