Julia Dubsky was awarded the Recent Graduate Residency at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios for one year beginning at the end of April 2017. This show will exhibit work made in the last year: influenced by a term at the Royal Drawing School in London; three months studio practice in Berlin; a short artist residency in Tehran; and the assimilation of these strands in her Dublin studio so far.

Julia has focussed on painting since the latter years of her BA at NCAD. The subject matter of her work has continued to handle nuances of the medium in particular, while also grappling with broader subjects, such as ‘conviction’, in principle. Marks, colours and forms become loaded and sometimes anthropomorphised - but also just as easily inanimate again. It is a form of perception that could happen in the flicker between this duality that motivates the work.
