New Video: Jamian Juliano-Villani Paints Under Pressure

In a new film from the New York Close Up digital series, artist Jamian Juliano-Villani grapples with the demands of consistently producing new and better work when she’s constantly under deadlines.

Filmed at work in her Ridgewood, Queens studio, the artist experiments with images from her vast digital image collection in a search for solutions, looking for the right content and composition to achieve both psychological depth and light humor.

“I really want to push the paintings, but I don’t know how yet. Hopefully I’ll figure it out and make them something that they aren’t yet.”
