Trestle Gallery is pleased to announce…
a solo exhibition of photographic work by Julia Wilson, curated by Jason Andrew of Norte Maar. To support our 2019 exhibition year, A Deeper Look, we made our annual open call Introductions, our first ever solo exhibition opportunity. Julia's work was selected by Jason from almost 400 applications submitted. This is the first exhibition of Trestle’s 2019 season, which will focus on solo exhibitions.
Coinciding with the reception will be an artist's talk by Julia Wilson, starting at 7pm. Come by to hear the artist talk about their work and practice, and engage with them in casual dialogue while enjoying wine and snacks.
As a curator interested in what’s happening now, it was exciting to get to see artists’ submissions from around the world applying for this opportunity through Trestle Gallery. Julia Wilson stood out as one who has honed her skills in capturing the world around her. I gravitated to her painterly approach to the image and her unconventional use of her personal computer as camera. There is an intimacy yet universal experience that she captures in her work.

ABOUT JULIA WILSON
Julia Wilson is a photographic artist, who explores our relationship to and between text and image, as well as photographic materiality within our technological age. Using the large format view camera, Julia photographs constructed compositions of words, images, and indexical marks on the screen of her personal computer. The final images serve as foils to our media profuse cultural atmosphere and lingual inundation. Julia’s images have been featured on the photographic platforms, Aint-Bad, PHROOM, Fraction Magazine, Analog Forever, BU’s academic journal SEQUITUR. Julia received a Bachelor of Arts in Classical Studies with a concentration in Latin and Ancient Greek translation from the University of Virginia and a Master of Fine Arts in Photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
