Julie Green’s second solo exhibition with Upfor focuses on a recent series of paintings on gessoed Chinet plates. Drawing inspiration from European flow blue ceramics from her personal collection, the artist weaves in narrative elements that consider domestic content related to identity, security and bias from a consciously female perspective, often balancing humor and earnestness. Green has long been concerned with overlapping themes of domesticity, decoration, art history, food and social justice in her work, and continues to spend half of each year working on her widely-exhibited project about capital punishment, The Last Supper.
