Julia Renaudot

Après l’Orage 

The question of travel is fundamental for Julia. It offers her the freedom of an elsewhere and opens her up to a multitude of themes: that of mental itinerancy, memory, the past, remembrance, but also dreams, imagination and fiction.

She does not strive for figurative accuracy, but rather for the transmission of all that can be dreamt of. She deliberately gives discretion to her image. There is something swarming in it, a half- floating and indecisive vision.

With time and hindsight, she produces an image that vaguely corresponds to the feeling of a distant, evanescent memory; a dream that would have inhabited us long ago.
A French visual artist, she began her studies at Cégep Saint Laurent in Montreal. She then went on to study painting at ENSAV la Cambre in Brussels.


The image is hesitant, suggesting rather than showing. There is a desire to give a double impression, between reality and fiction. With a visual undulation that enters into a dialogue with the texture of the crepe muslin, the two dance together, vibrating when colours mix or interlock. These velvety textures evoke an inevitable softness.

Moreover, the transparency creates
an immersive and contemplative atmosphere that helps us open our eyes to our environment and to discover our own imagination.
