5 x 5 Decision 4

The artist choice by curator Ford Crull is:

I found Julie’s work to be utterly delightful in that her use of space, light, and materials is both whimsical yet very thoughtful. There is obviously a very serious process that appears both complicated and yet very poetic. There are no easy answers here, yet a series of perceptions and possibilities as to the meaning ascribed to the environments. The symbolists of the late 19th century espoused the notion of ambiguity in their images so as to amplify the varied interpretations and meaning of their work. I think in Alperts work the same is true: that their are multiple ideas and truths in the environments, and it is up to us to decipher what those meanings are based on our own sensibilities and culture. The end result is a fascinating world of discovery and illusion.

Congratulations Julie!
