"Untitled #16" - Julia Dubovyk




12 x 12 x 1.5


Who is to say whether black and white are to be considered colors? This is a long debated issue without resolve. Pose the question to a scientist and, based on his knowledge of physics, his reply would be that “BLACK is not color due to its absence of light, but WHITE is surely a color because it is the sum of all colors.” Pose the question to an artist and her reply will be that “BLACK is a color and WHITE is not a color.” I see beauty in all colors, and for me this includes BLACK and WHITE. Sometimes opposites attract and create a powerful energetic interplay; the push and pull between shadow and light; the light in the darkness, the darkness in the light. There is passion between these two and they compliment each other with their contrasting and opposing characteristics bringing an intensity to the work that I could have not achieved using the more traditional colors.

Julia Dubovyk developed an interest in the arts at the early age of 13. Her insatiable curiosity led her to explore other modes of creative self-expression as she pursued her art studies in painting, design and glassworks throughout the major art capitals and prominent learning institutions of Europe. Her travels and living experiences in Spain, France and Italy, as well as her upbringing in the Ukraine, continue to be a rich source of inspiration in her work. Julia currently lives and works in New York City and she is a member of “The American Watercolor Society” and “National Association of Women Artists”.
