Julia Randall - Visual Studies Speakers Series, Fall 2013
Julia Randall is in love with drawing, and uses her seductive technique to craft images that subtly challenge assumptions about corporeality, desire, and the natural world. Intersecting sensibilities activate her work; images are simultaneously erotic and humorous, beautiful and repulsive. Although she clearly operates in the realm of fantasy, Randall uses observation-based drawing and a hyper-realistic technique to create images that are surreal and suggestive. Julia Randall attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1999. She received her M.F.A. from Rutgers University, and her B.F.A. from Washington University in St. Louis. She lives and works in New York City and in Connecticut. Randallâ€™s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Garvey Simon Art Access and Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York City, and in Sydney, Australia at Esa Jaske Gallery. Her drawings have been included in group exhibitions, including the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY, the Weatherspoon Museum of Art in Greensboro, NC, The National Academy in New York, KS Art in New York, BravinLee Programs in New York, Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles, and at the Paul Robeson Galleries at Rutgers University, New Jersey. Julia Randall is the recipient of fellowships and residency awards, including New York Foundation for the Arts, Yaddo, and residencies at the CitÃ© Internationale des Arts in Paris, France. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, NY ARTS, Art on Paper, Flash Art, and The Sydney Morning Herald. Additionally, her drawings have been featured in New American Paintings, American Artist, and Beautiful/Decay magazines.
