Julia Giles Artwork

Since my initial training as a painter, I have extended my practice to include photography, video, performance, land works and installation. I have used these media to explore the space we inhabit in the interaction between the elements and the land. Most of my work is drawn from the agricultural environment in west Cornwall where I grew up.

Over the coming winter 2017/18 I will be taking part in Woods to Where Else - a group project commissioned by the Stour Valley Creative Partnership in Kent, leading to a symposium at the end of the project and publication in 2018.

The video Another April was awarded third prize at the Harvest Short Film Competition. It was shown at the Harvest Film Festival 2017, Lower Hewood Farm, Dorset on 21st October 2017. The ten shortlisted films will be shown at other venues in London and the south over the coming year. Details to follow.
