Julie Dean

Julie Dean is an emerging contemporary glass artist making thought provoking kiln-formed glass blocks. Fused layers of glass embed graphic images evoking emotion and developing narrative. With a background in design Julie started working with glass in 2011. Her work explores the fragility and resiliance of the human condition.

Details about work or recent projects

I have recently completed a body of work entitled 'Sometimes the Truth Hurts' that explores the Khmer Rogue regime and civil war in Cambodia between 1975-79. I have had several pieces from this work selected for exhibition, most notably "S-21 Boy: Losing you is no loss" for Emerge 2012. Themes of fragility and resiliance continue to be explored in my new works. I am also continuing to develop my technical skills and am exploring the disciplines of kiln-casting using lost-wax technique.
