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. 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.

Julia Randall: Lick Line

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 21, 2013
'Lick Line is a series of disembodied mouths floating in space. Rendered in exacting detail, the tongues protrude and beckon the viewer to come close. The mouth is the body's critical site, where we eat, speak, kiss and bite; it is both ferocious and tender. We see the mouth and tongue all the time, yet they are highly intimate. Seen as a group the mouths undulate and bounce. Like many voices talking at once, they strangely invade our space with humor and perversity.' Julia Randall
