Julie Barrett Cataldo explores the concept that we are not the sole artists of our own
perception through paint, stitch and cloth.
As a self taught artist, sewing is a fundamental technique in her paintings. It represents
the hands-on intimacy involved in translating, to others, the language of one’s perceived
As part of a collaborative duo, Barrett Cataldo created dolls and fantastical doll clothing
for many years. In January of 2017 she left that vocation to focus on her mixed media
paintings, which are often permeated with featureless, doll-like figures. These figures
imbue her work with a vagueness that invites the viewer to consider themselves and the
degree to which they actually control their worlds.
