Julie Tremblay

“Quebecois sculptor Julie Tremblay contorts grids of rigid aluminum mesh into amorphous, fluid and elusive continua. Painted and (sometimes) illuminated by strings of light, Tremblay’s sculptures mimic the gestures of a dance set to the music of dimensions and scale. Sitting at the heart of her expressionistic conundrums is a sincere fascination with the patterns of nature, the geometric interconnectivity of all things organic and artificial. Like an expanding fractal, Tremblay’s methodology directs her artistic momentum inwardly, revealing the eerie similarities between the dome of the stars and the cave of the mind.” - Brainard Carey

Julie Tremblay is from Quebec, Canada, and is currently based in Newburgh, NY. She has a Master’s of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, which she obtained in 1997 with a mention of excellence. She has since exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Mexico, the UAE and most recently at the Art Dubai art fair and the Sharjah Art Museum. In 2012, CBS.com named her as one of "5 best up and coming NYC artists." Other recent press include feature articles in Madame Magazine in the United Arab Emirates, Surface Magazine China, Creative Quarterly, and Nu-Modé Magazine, just to name a few. In 2013, she was awarded a residency with the prestigious Parisian gallery ”Galerie RX”, where she spent the summer in their gigantic space in Ivry-sur-Seine, former scientific laboratory of the Frédéric Joliot-Curie, making a large site-specific installation, while musing on nuclear fission. Solo exhibitions include: The Invisible Dog in Brooklyn, Galerie Zidoun-Bossuyt in Luxembourg, Galerie RX in Ivry-sur-Seine (France) and most recently at Ann Street Gallery in Newburgh, New York. She has completed two major commissions in Canada; one for the lobby of a new movie theater in Markham, Ontario, Canada and the other for La Maison Simons, in Gatineau, Quebec. Julie is represented by Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery in Luxembourg.

Julie uses industrial and/or re-purposed materials to make visually impactful sculptures, installations and performances that bridge nature, industry and technology and explore our connection and place in the world/universe.
