ETERNALLY PRESENT IN ABSENCE
12 Rue De Bellevue 93260
LES LILAS, PARIS, FRANCE
16 - 30 NOVEMBER, 2019
Eternally Present In Absence articulates a body of paintings by Julia Vanderbyl created over a year in Paris. Her practice is based on a profound interest in false dichotomies, with her most recent work considering the relationships of absence / presence, transience / permanence, and beauty / grief. Hovering between figuration and abstraction, her paintings contain human figures emerging from within landscapes or alternatively, place symbols of the natural world, home, place and loss within large scale portraits. The ever-evolving merging of bodies and landscapes allow Vanderbyl to to develop a distinctive iconographic language that combines our contemporary understandings of human transience and loss with a deeper ethos of ancestral ties and the presence that is enacted within absence.
