About

Julianna Paradisi

My paintings explore life from a narrative perspective, sometimes blurring the lines between abstraction and representation. I’m interested the psychological landscape and how narratives impact individual and community interactions with the sentient world. In this way, the paintings hold space for conversation, and diverse thought.

 

 I studied art at Pacific Northwest College of Art. My paintings have been exhibited in galleries throughout the Pacific Northwest, and published nationally. I live in Portland, Oregon.

I am an artist/member of Gallery 114

1100 NW Glisan Street, Portland, OR 97209
