Julius' Style

Quilts have become a staple motif in Julius' work. A way of combining materials, connecting through stitch and exploring shape, form and line. The connection between canvas and practical objects blurs the boundaries between art and function and the idea that objects used, bare meaning through their connection with the day-to-day. Collage is usually the starting point for his works, whether for a painting, quilt or textile piece. This collection of work began with the process of gathering from his surroundings. Looking at the ‘things’ he had collected over the years and objects picked up from the beach, things connected to where he lives, the day they were found, and the people who were with him at the time. 

"The meaning of objects and the process of acquiring them is something I like to explore in my work. Examining the importance of objects, objects as amulets or how things become  reminders and vessels for memories or connection. " — Julius Arthur

The Lithomancer

"The Lithomancer is a collection of painted collages and textiles works that explores ideas around collecting objects and the meaning we project onto inanimate things. How the placement of these objects may provide answers to questions through their connection, formation and pattern. Thinking about the objects relationship to the owner, their origins and the space they are assembled within." - Julius Arthur
