Opening Tonight: Julie Elkins at Eric Schindler Gallery

Artist’s Statement:
The content of my work is influenced directly by my physical surroundings here in Virginia. I’m attracted to places where you can see the intricate remnants of history in thick layers. I build little isolated worlds based on dream imagery, crumbling buildings, abandoned places, graffiti, waste, dirt, bones and ghosts. I try to embody the beauty and sadness of overlooked places where there are decaying reminders of human presence, and you can feel the haunting reality of the passing of time.
