Julia Kidd utilizes wallpaper to create a backdrop for her monochromatic silkscreens. Old photographs and silhouettes of children playing, juxtaposed with the traditional pattern of the wallpaper, give each piece a unique dialogue. Each image evokes whimsical sentiment and speaks of a past era, a time when life was simpler. Kidd’s work subtly speaks of traditional gender roles and domesticity.
The artist shows regularly at the Genovese/Sullivan Gallery, Boston, MA. Julia Kidd's work is on loan from Genovese/Sullivan Gallery.
