Julia McKinlay - Newcastle University Summer exhibition

Julia McKinlay was the 2016-2017 Print Fellow at Newcastle University, during which she produced the following lithographs and screen prints.

Influenced by research expeditions to unique landscapes, museum collections and the writings of explorers, McKinlay's work is an attempt to reveal another world within her work. Her sculptures represent individual characters or elements that are found in nature. Specific subjects are collected together to create a balanced fictional environment within the work. 

The prints are translations of observations of the Icelandic landscape.

McKinlay works across sculpture, drawing and printmaking and frequently prints are taken using the sculptures as printing blocks, creating a version of the work that lives as a collection of prints.
