Julian Watts


Julian Watts uses traditional wood carving and furniture making techniques to explore the relationship between sculptural form and functional object. Using everyday items like wooden utensils as a point of departure, Watts follows the formal, functional, and cultural threads of each object to their most extreme, surreal end points. The result is an ecosystem of both sculptural and functional works that challenge the viewer to reconsider their preconceptions about the objects that make up the world around us. Watts was born and raised in San Francisco.
