Julia Randall is a New York-based artist. Her work focuses on naturalistic elements, as she interpenetrates fantasy with reality. Humorous but erotic, Randall’s beautiful images are details of our world mixed together. Repulsive to their core, they exist as notes of the artists observations and experiences in this world.
“Mysterious in tone, these drawings hint at the fugitive nature of our passions, and the dreaded passage of time. Spatial convolutions and open-ended narratives allude to the confounding emotional layers that exist between people, and the enigmatic nature of desire, love and loss. The adolescent boy, right on the curve of change from a boy to a man, is depicted in fleeting, dream-like states: sleeping, ecstatic, emotional. In this vein, desire is ultimately ephemeral, but ironically drawn in fastidious detail,” she writes on her website for her series Under and Afloat.
