Julie Cockburn

London-based Julie Cockburn’s background in sculpture is evident in the way she cuts up, rearranges and otherwise alters her cache of vintage photographs. Dozens of images—yearbook portraits, headshots, landscapes—are augmented with colorful embroidery obscuring faces, John Baldessari-style, circling heads like a crown or a halo, or meticulously tracing the outline of a suburban home. In others, parts of the print are cut out, the pieces reassembled into prismlike geometric patterns. You’ll never look at a shoebox of old photos at a garage sale the same way again.
