The paintings of Julie Caves are thick with colour using a lengthy process of building up transparent layers to create a substantial structure that refracts light. There is also an element of mystery, of nearly hidden things; you must take a moment and really look, the traces of decision-making are nearly buried. She uses painting to investigate colour: colour as an idea, as a system whose organisation is not perfect, as a mystery, as science, the seduction of colour, the acknowledged and the hidden meanings of colours, and colour relationships. The resulting paintings use colour to communicate directly with the subconscious.
