Save The Date. My solo exhibition at East End Studio Gallery
“In Somnis Veritas”…In Dreams There Is Truth.
A solo exhibition of paintings and assemblage sculptures.
Having shown locally and nationally, including being featured in print and video, East End Studio Gallery presents a collection of works by local artist, Julie Zarate.
Julie is a self-taught artist who has recently enrolled in the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, TX. She was the recipient of a scholarship awarded by the school in the spring of 2012. Recent publications of her work include E-Volved Magazine (Tattoo and Fine Art), Houston Chronicle, Houston Press and Catapult Art Magazine. She was also selected for book cover designs, “Demon in the Mirror” by Santino J. Rivera and “Old Dogs” by Donna Moore.
The art that I create is an amalgam of influences from Michelangelo toYepes, covering an array of genres and styles, ultimately fusing them to create something contemporary and iconic, yet timeless and infinitely familiar.
My early years were shaped by popular culture and the empowerment of women, thus most of my works reflect this. However, I am more interested in the journey and new discoveries of creating a new piece of work than I am with the finished product. This is usually how I discover something new, either in the execution or the medium. As my work continues to evolve, the strong undercurrent of taking risks, confidence and the sheer desire to create is ever present.
