This solo exhibition of new work by Julie Williams comprises two photographic series and one moving image (video) work.

Fire State of Mine consists of nine photographs captured from within the fireground adjacent to the artist’s home during the devastating State Mine Fire of October 2013. The images are presented as revered memories that mirror the physical presence of fire as a destructive yet beautiful force.

Lost features four photographs depicting water in its most savage, beautiful and evocative form. The artist focuses close on the water of a mountain stream, capturing imagery from the flow. These images are not digitally manipulated, and reflect our universal connection to water as a place of enduring mystery and meditation.

There Swam Two Gogols is a video work of 3 minutes duration examining our spiritual connection with water. The powerful forces of creation are evoked through the meeting of darkness and light. This elemental connection offers glimpses of line drawings, which we recognise as samples from our own written language and the writings of other cultures and subcultures. Long before humans developed written language, the light from the sun was reflecting off the surface of the Earth’s water. It suggests our stories preceded us.
