February 1 - March 6, 2020

Gallery hours: 11am-6pm Fridays and by appointment
A LORY & AN EAGLET is Julia Hart’s personal attempt to make sense of a world that makes very little sense to the artist. Inspired above all by what we cannot immediately see—those dreamlike spaces that exist just outside of our vision—Hart looks to nature and abstract forms to express wonderment at the conundrum of reality through photographic and painterly, digital and analog processes informed by the subject matter of each image. Whether it be an abstract or a portrait, each image Hart composes empowers viewers to see the world around them just a little differently, making the everyday exotic and the familiar enigmatic.
Julia Hart lives in Austin with her husband, two children, one step daughter, one dog, two cats, and a handful of chickens. As well as a creator of art, Hart is also a collector and admirer of art, advocating for fellow artists through Tin Whistle Gallery on Bolm Road in East Austin.
