Julia M. Barello (New Mexico) is a visual artist in the medium of multi-layered, large-scale wall installations and jewellery. After an academic career at New Mexico State University she has returned full time to her art practice creating multi-layered, large-scale wall installations, which are made of recycled medical imaging film translated into intricately cut, semi-transparent shapes.
Barello’s work has been exhibited internationally at the Kaohsiung Museum in Taiwan, Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, Germany, Castello Sforzesco in Milan, Italy, and others, as well as in numerous national venues. Her work has also been collected by the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and is on permanent display at institutions including Boston Children’s Hospital, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire, and BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. in California.
