Julie Shiels has a background in print making. Back in the 80s she was a member of Another Planet Posters, a group that made silkscreens with a clear political message. These days her work is more whimsical, somewhat gentler.
She describes three different sorts of practice: discarded, boxed in, and postings. All still happen on the street and they're entirely ephemeral: words like You Never Think It Will Happen To You stencilled on a discarded mattress, Back Soon and On the Brink on cardboard boxes.
