Julia Robinson

Julia Robinson is a South Australian visual artist working in the fields of sculpture and installation. Her work reflects an interest in religion, the afterlife and death and how humans address these concerns through ritual. Drawing on established belief systems and a multitude of sources including myths, fairy tales and European superstition and folklore, Robinson examines our discomfort with the finality of death. Recent works draw on depictions of harvest, fertility and resurrection rituals in folk horror films such as The Wicker Man (1973) and Wake Wood (2011).

Since graduating from Adelaide Central School of Art Julia has exhibited regularly and been the recipient of a number of grants and awards. Recent exhibitions include Versus Rodin: Bodies across space and time at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Long Ballads at Ideas Platform, Artspace, The Song of Master John Goodfellow at Greenaway Art Gallery, Structure for navigating an unknown afterlife at Art Pod and One to rot and one to grow at the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia. Julia is currently lecturing at Adelaide Central School of Art. Her work is held in the Art Gallery of South Australia, Artbank and private collections.
