About the Artist
Julie-Ann Simpson (b.1992, Scotland) is a painter whose practice looks into the porous boundaries between interior and exterior spaces, dreams and reality. The paintings sit in that transitional place, often beginning as representations, but eventually seem to slip into ambiguous afterimages. Simpson’s latest body of work considers our interrelationship with the natural world bringing together ideas of imagination, ritual, memory, pleasure and language. Julie-Ann lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.
