Painting & Printmaking School of Fine Art

Julia Varis



Where is my consciousness?

Are my dreams and nightmares a part of it?

Can I ever truly understand the point of view of another person?

My works are about analysing memories and emotions that are linked to certain spaces. By using veins and root like fractal forms, I strive to build connections between the body, domestic space and nature.

I use my own home as the setting for my installations, and since I might live midst the work for weeks or months, I view performance art to be a part of my practice. I make sense of my everyday lived experiences through art. My research interests consist of autotheory, psychology, anatomy and fractal geometry.
