Take a look at the view

Press Release: 20/02/2006

Don't miss Julia Monteiro's exhibition in the view, Winchester's visual arts space in Bridge Street. Her exhibition called 'L'Espace' will be running from 14 February until 14 March. Passers by can see work created and installed in the shop window.

Through her work she examines space from variable positions; looking at the physicality of the space using the object and light as a means of measurement. She uses metaphors and space to suggest absence and presence in her paintings.

'My current work uses philosophical and phenomenological theories as concept and basis. The writings and ideas of Martin Heidegger and Gaston Bachelard have been influential in my paintings of the 'Thingness' of the objects, and the relationship between meaningful objects and inhabited space', said Julia Monteiro

Julia is currently in her final year of a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art Painting at Winchester School of Art. She is aiming to stay in Winchester for a further year to study an MA in painting.
