Historical Context:
Julie Upmeyer’s artwork, projects and exhibitions have taken her all over the world. Most recently this native Michigan artist has traveled from Istanbul to Wales. She creates sculptures, performances, installations and has become interested in photography. Within her work Upmeyer enjoys the challenge of responding to a specific space, place or theme. In this installation, Upmeyer met the challenge of the location and theme of her installation by playing with color and manipulation of dimensions for her sculpture of larger-than-life pill-like forms that jut out of the second-floor balcony.
