About the Work
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.
Julie Curtiss (b. 1982, Paris, France) has a forthcoming September 2023 solo exhibition at White Cube (London). Previous solo exhibitions have been held at Anton Kern Gallery (New York), VSF (Los Angeles), and 106 Green (Brooklyn), as well as a two-person show with Matthew F. Fisher at Monya Rowe Gallery (Saint Augustine, FL). Select group exhibitions include presentations at White Cube (Paris), Make Room (Los Angeles), LACMA (Los Angeles), Deitch Gallery (New York), Ross + Kramer (New York), Galerie Valérie Bach (Brussels), Nassau County Museum (New York), Anton Kern Gallery (Paris), CLEARING (Brooklyn), Perrotin (Seoul), Howard's (Athens), and Chapter NY. Curtiss lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Authentication & Resale
This work is signed by the artist en verso
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
