Post Lot Text
Julie Cockburn’s unique practice supplies found photographs with new narrative possibilities, deploying a range of techniques to transform her images into surreal, hybrid visions that cut across time and space. Turning to older images from the middle of the twentieth century, Cockburn embroiders her photographs with geometric patterns in vivid colours, or produces kaleidoscopic digital edits that obliterate her subjects’ identities. The figures and landscapes at the heart of her photographs are put into dialogue with her new forms, haunting art historical movements and styles with faded memories and lost biographies.
