Energy Descriptions is an exhibiiton of paintings in gouache on paper stained with tea or india ink. Thematically they vary from botanicals to abstract shapes. The botanicals are efforts toward describing generative power and unitive life force almost realistic with something spontaneous and unplanned appearing within each. Alternatively, the abstract pieces represent meditations in which Bright selected a subject, allowing each movement of the brush to draw her deeper inside of it.
Julianna Bright was born in Los Angeles in 1971. She grew up in Southern California and received a BA in English Literature from UC Berkeley in 1995.
Julianna’s vivid, delicate works in gouache, watercolor and ink have appeared on album covers, in periodicals and in galleries around North America. Her band – Golden Bears – with her husband Seth Lorinczi, was 2012 alternative pick on iTunes & Amazon. Julianna also makes award-winning children’s music under the name Cat Doorman.
She lives in the Pacific Northwest.
