Art Connect Women 2024 exhibition, "The Quilt of Life" Julia Borg
About
In her solo exhibition titled "In Bloom", Julia Borg presents a masterful exploration of a deep concept that originated during the Covid-19 period in 2020. Immersed in the stories and biographies of outstanding women of different times, she was inspired and sowed the seeds to create a collection of paintings that, to her, acutely reflect the very essence of femininity.
Julia opted for a fresh semi-abstract style and started experimenting with mixed media. From bold, expressive strokes to nuanced, intricate lines, within each rendered petal, each sinuous stem, Julia unveils a myriad of facets of womanhood: - the depth of the soul, the boundless generosity of the heart, motherhood and the elegance inherent in feminine forms.
The choice of "Blooming" as a thematic anchor holds deliberate significance, symbolizing the blossoming that occurs when love, equilibrium, and happiness converge. Through her painting, Julia radiates various emotional states that encourage a woman to bloom, causing a harmonious cascade of flowering in her surroundings.
Through her art, Julia Borg not only captures the external beauty but delves into the intricate interplay of emotions and states of being that define the essence of being a woman.
