Julia Wernig

Leoben, Austria
Julia Wernig has loved the surrealistic drawing style since she was young. Julia’s style incorporates imagery that dives into psychology and the collective unconscious. The colors are as important as the figures within her work. When Julia looks at her finished artwork, she tries to interpret them, but often she finds no concrete answer. The titles of Julia’s artwork are said to be determined by her mood at the moment she finishes her work. The pictures area bout shadow and light and the archetypes found in her culture. Carl Jung said, “Anyone who perceives his shadow and his light simultaneously sees himself from two sides and thus gets in the middle.” Julia has struggled with a mental disability since she was a child. For a long time she was ashamed of her art, because her pictures are so personal to her. Julia’s hope is that her work can be useful as an archetypical tool for self-inquiry.
