The Genesis series began several years ago with three relief etchings, cellular works inspired by beehives. It continued after a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, an island still in the process of becoming. When she returned to gentle Maui, she realized it once went through the same dramatic process of creation. Julie comments, "The Hawaiian islands are such yeasty places, especially the Big Island. I could feel and see creation and destruction, destruction and creation." Genesis VIII, IX, and X, an outcome of that trip, comprise an astonishing triptych suitable for a boardroom or large living room. Julie developed a process for these pieces using luminous pigmented inks requiring multiple impressions to achieve the final result. They are one-of-a-kind pieces, unique in the world of art.
