Julie Cooper's "Realm of Possibilities"

On display now through March 28th, 2017



Artist Statement:  I have lived in Columbia SC most of my adult life. My love of abstracts began when I fell off a curb and skinned my knee. The thought that the red blood with the white concrete lines looked so cool that I went home and painted it on canvas.  Fast forward, to a midlife crisis, I decided needed a college degree. While at USC I enrolled in art courses and fell in love with abstracts once more.  A long time passes and here I am again, full circle, finally painting the abstracts that I love.  The Earth Songs Collection comes from my passion and fascination with gems and minerals. These beautiful specimens come from our precious earth.  
The Cities Collection comes from my love of the hustle bustle and noise of cities everywhere.  The Jubilee Collection is a compilation of imaginative ideas. They are the fun paintings of my collections.  Enjoy!
