Julia Farrer trained at the Slade School of Fine Art and became a Harkness Fellow at the University of New Mexico and New York, 1974-76. In 2007 she was the winner of the Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander/Sunday Times watercolour competition.
"My work is fundamentally abstract and has always been concerned with geometry, - from the amorphous, ambiguous geometry of space to the architectural constructed geometry of volume. The idea and its means of expression [technique], have always been inseparable; from the early paintings on canvas through the gamut of printmaking techniques and watercolour to the most recent computer generated images, language and idea are one".
Julia’s work are exhibited in the The Arts Council of Great Britain; The British Museum, Dept of Prints & Drawings; Tate Gallery; Victoria and Albert Museum; La Fondation Rothschild, Paris; La Bibliotheque National, Paris; Musee Departamental Stephane Mallarme, Vulaine-sur-Seine; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; University of Houston, Texas, to name a few.
