River by Julia McKenzie is a screen print showing the River Thames with bird shapes cut out of maps highlighting the green spaces along the River. The print has the quote “There are two things scarce matched in the universe, the sun in heaven and the Thames on earth” running through it, a quote by Sir Walter Raleigh.
Artist Julia McKenzie produces work that is about seeking out and examining traces of nature and fragile glimpses of things that have existed, natural or man made in her immediate environment. Working from her South London studio in her garden, much of her work is based on what she finds and sees as she journeys up and down from the house to the studio. Julia McKenzie’s inspiration comes from living in the city and the natural landscapes around us. Her work starts with drawings which evolve into intricately detailed laser cut designs or screen prints, often of the the hidden or concealed insect or bird life that live alongside us in the city
