Julie Corbett is an artist based in East Yorkshire exploring the idea of ‘place-faithfulness’. That perilous state of being where you may be ‘out evolved’ by your environment.
Corbett’s paintings and films are a hybrid mix, using writing to support her developing interest in mark making. Incorporating modelling of flood risk, her work challenges memory with experience, as each individual panel of the painting builds the whole landscape.
Corbett seeks to question reportage and narratives of how we act on the actuality of a changing climate in our own locality.
