Toronto, CA

Julianne Ess/Foot-to-Face is a multimedia artist currently working with collage, stop-motion animation, and zines to tell a cyclical apocalyptic story. She approaches her art practice as a way of documenting processes of transformation and is interested in its power to expose and heal our fears around change, the unknown, and our capacity for intimacy. Ess is self-taught and roots her work in a holistic, anti-oppressive ideology. She is currently based in Toronto, and has previously lived and created work in Winnipeg (where she grew up), Freiburg, Brussels, Ghent, and Edinburgh.
