Julie Joly

  • Painter

Birth in la Réunion, a transition to Sciences-Po in Aix-en-Provence and a promising career in Paris in communication (in the luxury sector), the fate of Julie Jolie seemed to be written far away from any artistic path. But with a painter for a father and a children’s author for a mother, the need to be creative was quickly felt. ‘I had the desire to work with my hands and could no longer bear the confinement in an office. I wanted to explore my creativity, even by dropping everything! Today I am very happy that I did it!’ explains the artist, who in less than three years, succeeded in establishing herself alongside the general public and the criticism. After having resigned from her job in 2015, she opened her studio and launched into sculpture, finding a surprising new material, the iron wire, allowing her to capture the lines of the masculine and feminine bodies: ‘it is a material that speaks to me. I think it allows the creation of works on the border of drawing and sculpture. In addition, it is a material that remains delicate and brings lightness to the human body. Her works that play with depth, shadow and emptiness highlight the sketches.

Metamorphosis, blur, intervals, movement, androgyny, transcendence or religion, the themes that inspire her are numerous and recall those of the Austrian Egon Schiele (1890-1918) who also drew and painted curved and angular bodies, looking slightly tortured. She also paints paintings that are not yet intended for commercialisation.
