About Julie


Julie Levesque is a sculptor and installation artist, as well as the founder and curator the Art for the Garden, an outdoor exhibition of contemporary sculpture.

In her work she is primarily concerned with motion and the transformation of energy into, for example, inanimate objects. Slumped, eroded, or enlarged, energy is made visible in ways never physically show in the body. Working almost exclusively in white, she strives to create tension, by removing the color from these objects.

Levesque was recently awarded an Artist’s Resource Trust grant. She also won a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant in 2005 and the grand prize in the Provincetown Art Museum’s national competition in 2001. Her work is included in numerous museums and collections, both public and private, and regularly exhibited across the United States.

I suffer from severe insomnia and see things that look just like this after a few days of no sleep.

For me this is deeply disturbing

I really like the one on the top it makes me feel as if the woman is challenging the animal to avenge its fallen comrade.

captures the essence of human effort

Claustrophobia of being in wide space of nothingness.

I like the power in your work.

I think it's different, but cool. :)

Very cool. Kind of scary, but I like the evocative image. There is movement within a still, interesting texture, and nice balance.

So cool. I absolutely love it. :)

It looks like it is made out of carpet
