Physical negotiations are central to the textured paintings and improvised sculptures for which Julia Dault is celebrated. In her multilayered paintings, Dault employs organic and synthetic supports such as canvas, leather, vinyl, spandex and wooden frames, which act as surfaces to hold paint or as a means of imposing patterns. Whether adding or subtracting paint from these materials, she uses unusual tools such as rubber combs and squeegees that standardize her gestures. Repetition and transparency are important to Dault; looked at closely, her paintings reveal the process of their creation. Published in partnership with The Power Plant, Toronto and the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver and featuring essays by Julia Paoli and Nigel Prince.
