Sculptor and installation artist Julia Barton has a particular affinity with plants and other natural forms, coupled with a fascination with technical and scientific advances and the minutiae of construction techniques and materials.

This apparent dichotomy of interests is reflected in the basic theme of contrast which can be seen throughout her work, most clearly expressed in the use of vividly contrasting materials in individual pieces, though it can also be identified on a conceptual and imaginative level in the way that preconceptions about places or forms are ritually subverted in her work.
