Watercolour and ink are the perfect media for allegorical narratives by Julianna Bright. Mothers, daughters, rabbits and spectres of death make up part of Bright's cast of characters who interact with each other and various aspects of nature. Bringing to mind works by William Blake and Henry Darger, Bright investigates her own philosophies through a world of fables where children hold the key to unlocking emotions of hunger, vigor and truth.
