Julie Westbury

I met Julie in 1986 when she taught me textiles at West Sussex College of Art and Design and we have stayed in contact ever since.

On a visit to Julie’s home in Ramsgate with my daughter, she showed me these amazing collages which I now sell at Elphick’s.

In the first image, which is one of a series of collages called ‘The 3 Pearl Necklaces’ Julie’s photograph ‘Ramsgate Sands’ is recreated as a postcard and repeated and manipulated in such a way that ordinary objects in the picture like the post box and the concrete bollards, magically become red ribbons and a string of pearls. 

In the second image ‘Ramsgate Red Ribbon’ a slightly different placement of the same photograph gives a totally different effect.

They remind me of the fractal images you see when looking down a kaleidoscope.

The last image is the photograph ‘Ramsgate Sands’.
