Julia Westerbeke

Mill Valley, CA

In paper works and drawing-based installations, I create abstract terrains that exist somewhere between the organic and curiously alien, the familiar and the foreign. Taking inspiration from science fiction and biological forms, I build intricate surfaces that pay homage to the complexities of organic life as well as its ceaseless regeneration, flux and decay. Ultimately the work speaks to our warped yet loving relationship with nature.

Bay Area-based artist + writer + educator. Founder and curator of THE RED WOOD, an ongoing virtual exhibition in response to the wildfires. Co-founder of Time | Material, a collective for artists who are also parents. A.I.R. Gallery Artist.
