The World According to Julie Heffernan

Is it a microcosm or rather a macrocosm of self, delightfully interpreted by Surrealist artist Julie Heffernan on canvas, her symbolic vision of the world with nuances, light touches of colour, and admirably rich detailing, that invite spectators to explore and lose themselves in this total immersion experience, in this extrapolated imaginary world...


Pict 1-3: Respectively (1) 'Self -Portrait as Big World' (oil on canvas, 2008), (2) 'Self-Portrait as Sky-Scraper', and (3) 'Self-Portrait as Big House'. All sourced from Escape into Life: Julie Heffernan's Contructions of Self.
