Born and raised in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies, Julie Jablonski received her BFA from the University of Colorado Denver in 2016. Working primarily in oil paint, and additionally in mixed media, sculpture and installation, Jablonski is concerned with the physical and symbolic aspects of materials and subject matter, often incorporating imagery from mass media and found objects in dramatic groupings. Her psychology degree, handwriting analysis consulting business, international travels, and lifelong commitment to the martial arts channel into her work an interest in human experience, philosophy, mark making and movement. She draws inspiration from Dahn Vo, Hugo Ball, Don Francisco Goya, Barbara Kruger, Mathew Barney and Kazuo Shiraga in her exploration of artistic process and the various ways we walk around in our shoes.
Jablonski is a member at Pirate Contemporary Art Gallery in Lakewood, Colorado, and has exhibited work in Taos, New Mexico with Greg Moon Art, Wilder Nightingale Fine Arts and David Anthony Fine Art. She has also shown throughout the Denver Metro area including Republic Plaza, Spark Gallery, Rodeo Market Gallery, Edge Gallery, Cleo Parker Robinson Theater, RedLine Gallery, the Dikeou Collection, Lakewood Cultural Center, the Denver Press Club, the Tivoli Complex, Anschutz Medical Center and the Emmanuel Gallery. She has worked and interned at the Dikeou Collection and has interned at the Denver Art Museum. The artist’s work is published in Titmouse magazine and was awarded the People's Choice Award at the 2016 Research and Creative Activities Symposium with the University of Colorado Denver. Jablonski lives and works in Littleton, Colorado.
