Julia Mckenzie is an artist based in NYC.
Her work mainly consists of figurative paintings of people that are close to her. She is interested in an individual's relationship with themselves, free from the facade they put on for others. Her work explores isolation and the difference between being alone and being lonely. She feels that the connection she has with the people she paints is an important part of the intimacy of her work. She wants the viewer to see the figure as not only a symbol but as the person that they are.
