Julee Holcombe
Julee's photographs encompass the interpretations of courtly paintings, religious parables and modern street sensibility as she incorporates historical references within a Utopian vision. Julee's art investigates contemporary cultures as she reconstructs and collages interior and exterior environments from an amalgam of different original photographs, ultimately composing landscapes and portraits that mirror the classical traditions of painting. Julee's use of these symbolic and familiar reference points within the hegemony of art, philosophy, religion and the invention of history results in a new and intriguing artistic experience.
