Julie Cockburn

Cockburn makes new worlds from old. In a creative journey that involves the sourcing of materials and the time-consuming labour of intricate cutting out, she sculpts from the books and maps she accumulates.
Julie Cockburn's pieces are elaborate, intriguing and beautifully executed, with an autonomy that makes one want to believe their existence.Her work is in both public and private collections worldwide.
