Julie Dodd is an installation artist who mainly works with paper. Books and magazines form the source of her materials alongside other discarded materials, recycled to form installations, bringing a new life and meaning to them. Her work is rooted in environmental issues, using her practice as a platform to reflect her concerns of our consumption and environmental responsibility. Based on repetition and inspired by pattern and shape found in nature, her artwork appears as multiples, used to mimic life, growth and regeneration.
Julie Dodd graduated from Wirral Metropolitan College in 2009, before taking part in IMPACT 6 International Printmaking Exhibition and Conference. She spent the following year at Wirral Metropolitan College on the fellowship program. This ended with an exhibition which was part of the Liverpool Independents Biennial. In 2012 she was chosen by SCIBASE to be shown at the Supermarket Stockholm Independent Art Fair, she became Wigan libraries resident artist and spent a month working with the community as part of another residency program ‘Comma’. She has work is in several collections around the World and often shows her altered books at artist book fairs.
