Meet the Artist

Headshot of Julia Martin

Julia Martin is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Nashville, TN.

She is known best for vibrant otherworldly paintings, through which she candidly explores emotional relationships – both internal and external – via abstraction of the human figure. Intuition and experimentation guide her practice, which has branched into multimedia works on paper, polychrome wood sculpture, assemblage and some flirtation with fiber art.

“The compulsion to render the human figure in painstaking detail throughout the early stages of my career informs the freedom in my mark making these days. In turn, freedom dances with old urges hopefully leaving each piece exquisitely incomplete. My own private anarchy.”
