Julia Couzens American, b. 1947

Julia Couzens has created distinct bodies of work in drawing, painting, sculpture, and text-based installation. Since the early 2000’s Couzens’s textile-based constructions have taken shape between the disciplines of craft, abstract painting, and sculpture. Her hybrid forms are intuitively determined and reflect the imperfectly beautiful and unapologetically flawed. Couzens layers ruminations on painting, the expressive character of materiality, feminist critique, and cognitive uncertainty into speculative assemblages, seeking enchantment in a provisional world.
