This exhibition round includes works by Julia Curran which will be on view in the First Floor Main Gallery from September 25 – November 16, 2019. 


About the artist:

In a brightly colored barrage of many-layered magnificence artist Julia Curran creates raw homages to the sacred feminine, conflicted ex-votos for the body, and frenzied satire of hyper-masculine insecurities and the apocalyptic pitfalls of capitalist America on steroids. Predominantly a printmaker, she also works in sculpture, performance, painting, and installation in her creative conquests. Julia’s work is of the socio-politically conscious tradition of printmaking, but is also nuanced by the artist’s well-seasoned perspective and understanding of pop culture. Born in Saint Louis, Missouri, Julia is a Fulbright scholar, the youngest member of The Outlaw Printmakers, and received her MFA from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi in 2015.


From the artist:

Ever since I began drawing my style has been raw and graphic which I found translates easily to woodcut and screenprint. My work is of the socio-politically conscious tradition of printmaking which I combine with collage and painting to make frenetic, many-layered mixed-media compositions. The concepts I have always focused on are toxic masculinity and the excesses of American capitalism and imperialism; themes I address through narrative and satire. Currently I’m exploring these topics in relationship to my own body, as well as the idea of the sacred feminine. In my work I seek to address the nuances of serious, sometimes disturbing, but always hopeful subjects through highly-crafted compositions rich in color and detail.
