Julia Randall: Lures, Decoys, Tongues, and Bubble Gum

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 10, 2014
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.

The overall muted pattern works by this Brooklyn based artist are meticulously meditative and alluring.
