Julia trained as a photographer, which made her develop a very accurate sense of composition. Her works always remain clean and elegant, even when they depict images which are hard to confront. They appear like visions rather than assemblages, in perfectly controlled compositions which never seem overloaded. Julia works with collage as a medium of precision, generating personal exploration and insight into subconscious fantasies.
The colour palette of Julia Bellamy’s collages specifically reflects her conceptual territory, with black, white, gold, red and nude as the carriers of passion, pain and human vs animal creations. The results are often striking, verging on the explicit but deeply anchored in psychoanalytic explorations of the self. Just like the scalpel she uses for her cut-outs, these artworks are sharp and precise, and they propose a personal and well defined visual universe. A Julia Bellamy collage is unmistakably hers.”(Sabina Andron)
