Collection: Julia Cable

Through her painting, Julia creates oases. Small islands of consonance that at first glance give a sense of harmony, perhaps even utopia. But like oases, a grimmer reality awaits on the periphery. Subtle traces of aberrant character. Something that rubs. Julia works with earth colors in oil and egg tempera and uses only five different pigments: burnt umber, red ochre, gold ochre, Prussian blue and titanium white. "People, nature - the relationship between them is my main source of inspiration and basically always appears in some form in my works. The wild and the domesticated. Why we as a single species distance ourselves from our own habitat and no longer see ourselves as part of it. Motifs of playfulness and harmony that meet seriousness." Julia Kabell was born in 1986 and lives in the forest outside Unnaryd in Halland's hinterland. Apart from two years of studies in the graphic art department at Östra Grevie Folkhögskola, she is self-taught and has had creativity as a passion all her life. www.juliakabell.com instagram: juliakabellart SELECTED EXHIBITIONS - Halland's spring salon, Halland's art museum, Halmstad (juried) 2023 - Flaménska Galleriet, Borås Art Association, Borås, (duo) 2023 - "Habitat", Malung- Sälen's library, Malung, (solo ) 2023 - ”Habitat”, Galleri Forum, Hylte Municipality, Hyltebruk, (solo) 2022 - ”Spår”, Folkets hus, Varbergs Art Club, Varberg (duo) 2022 - Hallands spring salon, Hallands art museum, Halmstad (juried) 2022 - Hallands spring salon , Mjellby art museum, Halmstad (juried) 2019 - "Now, we, here", Immanuel church, Halmstad (group) 2018 - Galleri Underverket, Glokala Folkhögskolan, Malmö (duo) 2016 - "Insight/View", Limhamn art gallery, Limhamn (group ) 2014 -"Dream/Storm", Galleri St Gertruds, Malmö (group) 2013 REPRESENTED/PURCHASED - Halmstad Municipality 2023 - Malung- Sälen Municipality 2023 - Borås Art Association 2023 - Halmstad Municipality 2022 - Varbergs Art Club 2022 PUBLISHED - "Forest and Water" for the Swedish Forestry Agency 2022 - "The cartoonist appeal against Nuclear weapons and NATO" 2022 - Art Inside Out's poetry residency Plats.Poesi.Periferi for Region Halland, 2016.
