Julie Hedrick's new series of paintings, which she has called "Temporal Motion," draw from history, recreating it through fresh eyes and a primal need to unravel the profound secrets of the earth. It is as if an old and ancestral echo were resonating in these works.

There is a certain physicality to these paintings, more depth and a rumbling in them that gives them substance and more body. The reference to space is not as marked as in the past.
The light in "Temporal Motion" comes from a greater depth. It comes from deep within and it no longer floats within the surface. Among the sources for her palette are Rembrandt, Vermeer, Artemisia Gentilesci, and the frescoes of Pompei. One feels as if entering a fresco, a Rembrandt, a Gentilesci and being enveloped by its essence. They are much more human in a way, where the references about certain paintings are about human beings.
It is as if a world in turmoil were in the process of redefining itself. Core and culture merge in a world anew. "It is like being in the precipice," says Hedrick.
