Fisher London were delighted to welcome London based artist, Julia Forte, to exhibit a selection of her recent works. Throughout her career, Julia has worked with oils, pencil, Italian plaster, wood and pewter. The Fisher London selling exhibition 'A Sense of Time and Place' brought together Julia’s experience with multiple media and her love for London history and historic maps to create unique, hand held globes depicting historic prospects and celestial views.
“Maps, prospects and globes have been used over the centuries to enable people to explain and navigate their way through the world. They record a unique expression of people’s relationship with the ground beneath their feet, their built environment and their place in the universe providing the modern viewer with a unique visual bridge to a point in history which connects us to the past.
Using traditional globe making techniques from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Julia Forte takes historical city prospects, plans and celestial gores and transforms them into beautiful objects of contemplation. Specifically designed to be held, by placing these globes into the hands of the viewer you are invited to travel back into the past and consider your relationship to time and place.”
