About the Session

Self Portrait Collage

About the Session

Participants will work with Julia to replicate her studio process of collaging materials to build a self portrait.

Instead of using materials and sewing, Julia will shift media focus and use pieces of coloured paper and glue. Cut, rip, layer and glue -  piecing it together, to build your self-portrait.

"Let's be guided by our materials. What narratives are already embedded in the textile you have chosen to work with?"

Julia Gutman is a multidisciplinary artist living and working on unceded Gadigal Land. She reuses found textiles to produce ‘patchworks’ that merge personal and collective histories to explore themes of femininity, intimacy and memory.

Julia holds an MFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA in Painting from UNSW Art and Design. She was one of six exhibiting Artists in Primavera, Young Australian Artists at The Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney, in 2022. Alongside her practice, Julia is an educator, teaching Sculpture at the University of New South wales and running accessible textile workshops for artists of all ages.
