JULIE SHIELS



Julie Shiels is perpetually inquisitive. The camera is just one of her many tools, but it’s certainly the most important companion of her curiosity. Most of us take for granted what we see around us; Shiels does not. Looking at the overlooked is at the compassionate core of her project as an artist. Whether installing texts and sculptures in the corners of streets and alleyways, or photographing unlikely spaces and places, Shiels finds human traces, evidence of social life. All of which is valued. Julie’s work remind us that things continue to exist even when they slip from view.’ Julie Ewingtion: Essay from Empty, M.33, Melbourne, 2018.

Shiels makes work for both the gallery and public space.

There are two main strands to her sculptural and photographic work: transposing, abstracting and augmenting everyday objects, and employing text-based strategies in response to context. All her works re-contextualise found or overlooked space, objects and texts. The methodologies guiding her creative projects aim to bring into focus material things and physical spaces that are hidden, undervalued, disappearing or slipping from view.
