Somerville, MA, USA


Julia Shepley Referencing architectural structures, natural environments, and paths of motion, Shepley’s work attempts to convey the accumulative physical, social, and emotional imprint of the places we inhabit. Her work is informed by combining varying observational viewpoints, as well as the compressed, warped, or elongated shapes of shadows and reflections, to create the illusion of movement or reassembly and a layering of time. Shepley works on drawings sculpture and prints simultaneously pulling the drawings into three-dimensions and creating a graphic image with her wall sculpture. A stratification of material, imagery and mark-making help create the illusion of depth and transience. She has collaborated over the course of her career with artists in different disciplines to both make the work, curate exhibitions, and create opportunities for artists. She is part of the Boston Sculptors Gallery, , where she will have a solo exhibit of her work Julia Shepley: Carry, March 30 - May 1, 2022 She is also a member of the Boston Printmakers and The Textile Study Group in NYC.
