BIOGRAPHY

JULIANNA POLDI

Julianna Poldi paints the celebration of the human spirit. Her free-flowing gestures and intuitive style use a striking visual vocabulary, both courageous and subtle. Poldi directs paint across the canvas to reveal textures and forms that challenge and delight the senses and convey a deep connection to the cosmos. Blending and opposing colors, movement, and shape, Poldi composes on the canvas richly layered surfaces, which resolve into an orchestrated balance she refers to as “Woven Oneness”.

Poldi is an award-winning artist. Her first solo show in 1997 was a great success and led her to the Arts and Consciousness program at John F. Kennedy University in Berkeley, California where she received an MFA in 2003.  Through her studies she developed a deeper awareness of the spiritual dimension of her work.  Currently exhibiting in Scarsdale, NY,  Toronto, ON, Indianapolis, IN, and Berkeley, CA.
