About the instructor:
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.
