Jamian Juliano-Villani’s Painting Compulsion

Rafael Salazar, Ava Wiland

United States | 2015 | 6 min
Program presented as part of the program Diagonals — Program 2

What makes a painter paint? The Brooklyn studio of artist Jamian Juliano-Villani is crowded with a wildly varied collection of books, ranging from 70s-era fashion to commercial illustration, from Scientific American-style photography to obscure European comic art. This vast image bank is the foundation for her mash-up creative process. Long attracted to cartoons, the artist borrows from illustration as a way to deflate painting’s historical pretensions and to speak in a more direct language.
