INFO

Julie Cockburn takes found photographs and through cutting, embroidering and collaging makes them her own. The images she uses, from Hollywood actors to 50s American high school pictures, lend her work a nostalgic quality. Her work becomes a link between the past and the present.

Julie Cockburn lives and works in London. She has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe and the United States and her work is included in collections worldwide.

"There is something that happens beyond my control with a successful work, it is greater than the sum of its simple parts. By collaging a found image with embroidery thread, plasticine, sticky back plastic or tacky found objects it becomes a new image with a new history to unfurl and, by association, a new memory.  Perhaps it is something about the vulnerability of being human that I am trying to address.   The conversation that I pretend to have with these richly colourful characters whom I embellish, manipulate, torture and caress, is actually only with myself”.
