Julie Curtiss juxtaposes classic representation of traditional femininity -- pointed nails, come hither glances, and boudoir dynamics -- with subversive narrative elements that catapult her imagery into the surreal. By utilizing recurring elements throughout her body of work and framing her subjects narrowly via omission of otherwise humanizing elements, Curtiss' works revel in a specific psychological suspense: the grotesque subdued by formal elegance.
