Julia Gutman is an emerging Australian artist, best known for her intricate textile sculptures and commitment to narrative installation. Her work spans textiles, sculpture, painting and prose, with a distinctive irreverence that permeates all forms. Her growing collection of sculptures and stories intersect and build on one and other, continually investigating themes of gender, mythology, religion and fashion. Equal parts pointed and absurd, abject and romantic, Julia’s work is a surreal investigation of cultural behaviors and systems of belief.

During Gutman’s residency, she created Try Sitting On Me Now.
