In the Heart of a Wood, (detail).
Julia White: In the Heart of a Wood
February 17 – June 4, 2023
In the Heart of a Wood is an invitation to enter the archetypal forest, where tree-like columns serve as beacons of light and hope along an invisible path. A woodland soundscape beckons us into its wild mystery; water flows in a creek never-endingly, a cicada sings on a summer day. ‘Sit quietly and listen deeply’, the living mind of nature encourages in its own unique language deeper than words. Steeped in the steady quietude at the root of being, In the Heart of a Wood provides a potent point of connection to the wild currents within ourselves and our world.
Julia White is a sculptor that creates dreamlike sculptural landscapes with her enigmatic abstract forms. Originally from Toronto, White received a BFA from Queen’s University, Kingston and a certificate from the Deep Listening Institute, NY then followed her roots to a round house in the country near Walter’s Falls, ON, where she now lives on land with a creek and a forest of trees.
