Julia Wachtel (b. 1956, New York, NY) lives and works in New York and Connecticut. Wachtel’s oil, acrylic, and silkscreen-on-canvas paintings, which are drawn from popular culture, explore the impact of our image-saturated world. A figure of the Pictures Generation artists who emerged in early-1980’s New York, Wachtel’s early work mined posters of movie stars, pin-up girls, political figures, and pop music icons, as well as cartoon figures drawn from commercial greeting cards. Her current work primarily explores the vast space of the internet, a place of constantly replenishing images on a disorienting scale. Wachtel appropriates, juxtaposes, and ultimately distills these images into concentrated paintings, shifting the original logic and proposing an examination of the emotional, political, and aesthetic conditions of an image dominant world. Selected exhibitions include MoMa, New York; The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.; The Whitney Museum Of American Art; Bergen Kunsthalle, Norway; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Le Consortium, France; MAMCO, Geneva; Migros Museum, Zurich; Zabludowicz, London; Cleveland Museum of Art; ICA, London; Kunsthalle, Bern. Julia’s work can be found in institutions such as the MoMa, New York; MOCA,Los Angeles; The Whitney Museum of American Art; FRAC Normandie; Saatchi Collection, London; Cleveland Museum of Art; Brooklyn Museum; Vanhaerents Art Collection, Brussels; and the Zabludowicz Collection, London.
