Julia Jo (b. 1991, Seoul, South Korea; lives and works in Brooklyn, New York) focuses her practice on oil painting, emphasizing a distinctive style that incorporates a rich and vivid color palette, which she applies in both precise and heavy brushstrokes. Her approach to each canvas allows her compositions to oscillate between the figurative and the abstract. While at first glance Jo’s paintings possess a frenetic energy, upon closer inspection, discernible imagery emerges hinting at multi-layered narratives, interpersonal dynamics, and missed connections.
