Juliana Romano at Marvelli Gallery

Juliana Romano gave a talk at Marvelli Gallery for her first solo show.

She is a painter’s painter, and uses historical paintings to navigate through the development and build up of the heavy drapery in contrast to the highly reductive facial features.
I like this figuration, and am happy to see a nuanced return to portraiture with this Elizabeth Peyton-esque style.
