Yulia Iosilzon

Yulia Iosilzon draws on fragmentary narratives, persistent duality between text and subtext, clarity and opaqueness, rendered through form in the use of transparent fabric. Yulia’s work is born from an inherent interest in the narrative - of stories anecdotally told and retold, fables proliferated and propaganda through word of mouth and fairy tales passed down from generation to generation. It is snippets and snapshots of these histories that are captured and immortalised in her paintings, removed from their original context and often reduced to, or solely recognisable by, their base emblems or characters.
