Explore paintings and drawings of dancers and performers by Julia Munsey.

Julia Munsey trained at The Slade School of Art under the tuition of Euan Uglow. After teaching at Maidstone School of Art she then trained as a Jungian psychotherapist. It was after seeing an article about the opening of the Prince’s Drawing School that Munsey reimmersed herself in the world of drawing and enrolled at the school.

In order to capture the intense movement of the body, Munsey vigorously studies her subjects, often dancers or performers as they twist and turn through space. Only then is it that she begins to draw as much of the body that captures her attention.

The dissonance between the precise marks of the artist's technique and the fleeting, ephemeral movements of the performing dancers manifests itself in layered, tableau-esque portraits.
