30sec film artists Vol.12 – Julie Gladstone

“A lot of my work are inspired by urban grid and the textures of sidewalk”

Julie Gladstone‘s paintings build upon a notion of the Sublime that recognizes human intervention on the landscape, yet expresses that sense of yearning for beauty that has always been central to the Sublime. Her achievement is that she fuses a sophisticated abstract painting language that is formally innovative with a re-invigorated view of the Sublime, which integrates consumer culture and it’s detritus with Nature. In doing so, she helps redefine what beauty in landscape can be in our contemporary world.
