Julia Ironside

BA (Hons) Fine Art 2016

Central Saint Martins


Julia Ironside was born in Worcestershire in 1969. Her work presents a close examination of the quotidian, often bringing objects and materials from the natural world (or their semblances) into the gallery. A cavolo nero leaf languishing in her fridge or a bunch of flowers sitting on the kitchen table are captured in casts or transformed into landscapes, drawing our attention to their ephemeral qualities, while also (paradoxically) preserving them. Her work invites us into an intimate world that provides a poignant meditation on the tension between growth and decay, pain and loss.
