JULIE GREEN
FOOD, FASHION AND CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

June 7 – July 28, 2018
First Thursday opening June 7, 6:00 to 8:00pm

Julie Green’s second solo exhibition with Upfor focuses on a recent series of paintings on gessoed Chinet plates. Drawing inspiration from European flow blue ceramics from her personal collection, the artist weaves in narrative elements that consider domestic content related to identify, security and bias from a distinctly feminine perspective, often balancing humor and earnestness. Green has long been concerned with overlapping themes of domesticity, decoration, art history, food and social justice in her work, and continues to spend half of each year working on her widely-exhibited project about capital punishment, The Last Supper.
