Julia Thompson

A recent graduate from Parsons School of Design with a BFA, Julia Thompson is a Canadian artist based in New York. She works in sculpture, video, and installation, often employing materials that decay, harden, soften, move or transform. She reflects on the surprise of everyday experiences that conjure up a feeling once felt, of something distant yet familiar. Her work expresses conflict with time as something in and out of her control, in the ways it provides possibility of escape or comes about as an abrupt, even subtle interruption. These unstable moments stemming from her everyday experiences ground her work; in response, her work serves as a testament to liminality.
