Julia Runggaldier demonstrated her talent already as a child and it was clear to her from the start that she wanted to become an artist. The many drawings she realised from an early age laid a firm foundation for her own artistic persona. In the Liceo artistico, she expressed her strong character and paved her way for her independent work. The figure or portrait is her fundamental starting point for her paintings. She is not interested in realistic figure painting but seeks its source in the depths of one’s personality.

Julia Runggaldier acquired the technical capabilities of a figurative, realistic painter at a young age. From there, her artistic journey developed further from depiction of reality to striving to capture the language of the soul. She often analyses herself and reveals her intimate thoughts in her work. These are the intentions of an emerging self, as well as the natural essence of a delicate, growing sprout that revels in the Garden of Life. The poses she depicts interpret a natural gesture in which she gives herself up to embrace herself or perhaps to hide a secret. Julia draws her impulses from the sanctuary of the spirit. With a fixed gaze, she expresses a fleetingness that interrupts the accelerations of our time. The theme of her images could symbolise serenity or silence; the stage of a journey or the achievement of a goal. Julia expresses in her art an unanimity with herself and with the others and strives for universal unification. Her works speak of a life force and thus respect the greatness and fragility of humanity. Looking at Julia Runggaldier’s artworks, you can feel the great empathy with which she invites us to rest and enter a self-discovery in order to build a new self-worth that we so fervently need.
