Description

The Hours is my homage to all our valuable foreign workers, who I believe are the silent base of the American economy. They are the seeds, the fasteners, the wheels, the gears of our society; and by taking care of the basics, they nurture it. Some of these courageous and reliable workers accumulate sick hours for a lifetime but, frequently, either they are insecure about taking “sick leave,” or they are not allowed to take it by theirs supervisors, thus they continue working even when they are ill. This is my Now, as I work part time as a medical interpreter in the Workers’ Compensation System. It is a reality I was aware of, but now I come face to face with this unfair situation on a daily basis.” – Julia San Roman

Julia San Román is a California artist born in Madrid, Spain. Although she concentrated her formal education on science, choosing to move to the United States to further her career and earning a Ph.D in Biology, the influence of her childhood exposure to art remained an integral part of her passion for life and, after receiving training in Studio Arts and Art History at the college level, she has committed her life to painting.

       My artistic feeling has a mystical and lately more uplifting tone. This mystical consciousness, so fundamental for the work of an artist, is like an over consciousness of the world, which helps placing all things of life in their real dimension and frees me of convention. Thus, I create my art to convey a state of mind that longs to escape the quotidian. My subjects, though always evolving in the form, they are constant: the human figure interacting with nature and most significantly, with birds– in flight, at rest, and in relation to the figure. Birds in clouds for me have become the liberating icon, the ever present emphasis on the spirit taking flight.
       Lately, I am focusing on light to express a sense of HOPE. Here, under the influence of the Southern California Light & Space Movement, I find myself  exploring abstraction with a new impetus, where I integrate geometric abstraction with naturalistic episodes of light passing through clouds, thus creating a type of work, which is bilingual, in order to express in a more efficient manner who I am in the realm of where I exist.”
