julia sirianni is a brisbane based artist. she paints en plein air, intrigued by subtle juxtapositions of the unnatural in the natural environment. her practice is expressive and instinctive, inspired by the french impressionists she paints entire finished pictures out of doors. sirianni explores locations around queensland and northern new south wales, capturing variations in light as each day progresses. from life is a collection of pictures from sirianni’s recent wanderings, revisiting environments from her youth where the unnatural speckles the natural environment—calling into question human effects on our fragile environment. sirianni holds a bachelor of fine art, currently undergoing a masters of secondary teaching in visual art. she was a finalist and winner of the peoples choice award in the macquarie group emerging artist prize, sydney (2019) and her works are held in private collections nationally. from life is sirianni’s debut solo exhibition.
