Statement

Julia Alexander-Bates is a Los Angeles based artist. She studied at California Institute of the Arts where she received her Master of Fine Arts. Her work ranges from medium-sized paintings to large-scale (mural-sized paintings). The scale of her work acts to dwarf viewers in relation to larger than life characters and spaces.  American culture in its many forms, the subject of “flatness” and its connection to graphic arts, commercialization, advertising, and domesticity are all themes that reside within her work. Family, early child-hood American culture in the form of super-hero’s and rock stars, the search for tranquility in old age, and the psychology of the figure fuel her work. Her paintings reference an array of American culture from pop to folk as seen through the portrait, landscape, and domestic setting.
