Julia Katz: Solo Exhibition

Julia Katz creates work that consistently explores the movement of our bodies in our day to day lives. her current series of paintings are based on her observation of human activity around public places in chicago. Images featured in this body of work are derived by watching people congregate for concerts and public events as well as along the lake shore. While the artist's presence at these specific locations and events serve as the initial inspiration for the work, the paintings quickly become universal, as we search through the faces of the subjects of her paintings, and identify gesture, attitude, and body language. Katz's active, gestural brushwork is strongly in evidence here, and the overt textures and aggessive painterliness of her compositions engagingly echo the subject matter, exhibiting vibrancy, action, and energetic life.
