Julia Dault

°1977, Toronto (CAN) – lives and works in Brooklyn, NY (USA)

By devising expressive gestures through rules and reasoning indicative of Post-Minimal and Conceptual art, Julia Dault is part of a generation of artists invigorating abstract painting today. She explores notions of artistic labor, often through constraining, repeating, or mechanically producing her hand’s gestures. This is achieved in part through her use of non-traditional tools and supports: Dault scrapes and pushes paint across the canvas with combs, squeegees, and other implements that help her create pattern-like, but ultimately imperfect, compositions. Dault’s exploration of the handmade and the industrial continues in her sculptures, which she improvises on site by hand-bent building materials.
