In the nineteenth century, long before the current era of fake news, Emily Dickinson wrote a meditation on truth in her poem Tell all the Truth but Tell it Slant. With a title alluding to the poem, Julie Cockburn’s latest work similarly excavates authentic stories by circuitous means.

Using a rich material language, Cockburn embarks on a visual journey to delicately reveal narrative histories and layered meanings in lost and discarded images.

Cockburn partially obscures the images in a process she describes as “paradoxically unmasking” their intrinsic truths, layering and embellishing them with exquisitely hand-crafted embroidery, beading, vibrant screen printing and gestural flurries of paint.

Recurring patterns, spots, kaleidoscopes, Venn diagrams, harlequins, flower heads, and cages are formally balanced with the existing compositions in response to imagined internal dialogues.
