“Oral Fixations—Drawings by Julia Randall”

Event Date/Time

Mar 28, 2014 to May 24, 2014

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

From strange hybrid “Lovebirds” to disembodied mouths and monumental bubblegum, the subjects of Assistant Professor of Art Julia Randall's drawings seduce the viewer. The exhibition “Oral Fixations” is a ten-year retrospective of the meticulous, hyperrealist drawings by Ms. Randall. As the artist explains, she sees the mouth as "the threshold of the id," and her works are "simultaneously erotic and humorous, beautiful and repulsive." The exhibition title nods towards Sigmund Freud's theory of oral-stage fixation, but Ms. Randall's often monumental drawings go beyond psychoanalysis, presenting surreal, sensual, even visceral images, while surprising with a sense of humor.
