Julia Benz’s celebrate the borderline between the daily visible and mystical seclusion. Both worlds of experience are not mutually exclusive, but influence each other dynamically, creating fine intermediate levels and distant horizons of interpretation. The apparentness and disguise, the concrete form and the abstract dissolution go hand in hand in Benz’s paintings and celebrate the ambivalence as a contextual and compositional occasion, allowing the viewer to connect with known forms and immediately let them fall into a bottomless cosmos of color.
Julia Benz paints on paper, canvas as well as on murals and combines different materials which makes her work complex and versatile. Additional to solo and group exhibitions she contributed to projects and workshops in Sudan, Uganda, Bangkok and Finnland in cooperation with Goethe-Institut.
