Illustrations by Julia Randall

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.

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 hyperrealistic technique to create images that are surreal and suggestive.

“The Lures are drawings of mouths and tongues on the move; the rapid motion is suggestive of speech, biting, and sexual signaling. Glimpses of moist lips, tongues and teeth hint at the potential ferocity of sensual flesh. Isolated in space, the mouth in motion becomes a visceral spectacle.”—Julia Randall
