Julia Whitney Brown's work is narrative, observation based, or a study on form itself. The means vary from installation, to relational, to object, to experiential, to conceptual, to performance. Visually, her work is most influenced by the natural world, or the contrast of the natural world to an artificial environment. Brown's work stems from three means: 1.) the need to understand, define, and categorize reality; 2) for simple pleasure and 3) for creation as an expression of living dignity experienced through personhood. Influences that drive her work include experiences, relationships, relationships with experiences, and the active and constant transformation of her desires and worldview.
