Julia Rosa
Through the human form I am able to capture personal or observed experiences and interactions of daily living. I have taken my initial affinity for the human anatomy and manipulated the curvature and physiology of nature to mirror my personal outlook. I am interested in the interaction of my figures on my pallet as well as their interaction with the viewer. The intertwined bodies are meant to convey a sense of community while also focusing on the individual. Line and form suggest an identity of one and many.

My figures reside in a textured atmosphere where the cloth, line, and texture simultaneously bind them together as a communal whole as well as encapsulate them in their own personal moments. The viewer is given the opportunity and decision to become a voyeur or an active participant in painted environment. The bright, opaque, mannerist colors magnifies the duality that dominates my paintings.
