Julia Colavita
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: My artworks include paintings, works on paper, sculptures and installations. These abstract pieces often reference the body in its forms, functions, relationships and limitations. Infused with a sense of the uncanny they confront and join normally incompatible things; geometric and organic, internal viscera and outer skins, beautiful and repulsive, life and death, the decoratively abstract and figuratively monstrous. Julia Colavita was born in 1983 in Philadelphia, PA. She received her BA in Studio Art from Hartwick College, NY in 2005, and completed her MFA at the New York Academy of Art in 2010. In 2005 she studied and worked with art activist Checo Valdez and other international artists to facilitate community mural projects in Mexico, and also recently in 2009 in Zappatista community La Garrucha. In 2006 she was awarded a fellowship with the NEA-funded nonprofit organization ArtrainUSA, exhibiting her work and bringing the arts to small communities nationwide. She has been living and working in New York since 2006, and currently works as a Gallery Partner Liason for online art discovery site Art.sy.
