Yulia Iosilzon

Overview

Initial readability in her work is thrown into question by the persistent use of techniques which serve to interrupt the image and break down earlier impressions of visual plenitude.

Yulia Iosilzon draws on children’s illustration, fashion and theatre to posit fragmentary narratives in large-scale works. Initial readability in her work is thrown into question by the persistent use of techniques which serve to interrupt the image and break down earlier impressions of visual plenitude. Iosilzon’s circular approach to narrative is leavened with her lightness of touch. This is seen primarily through the artist’s own deployment of burlesque, the grotesque, irony and humour in images which use as their starting point everyday scenes.

 

Yulia Iosilzon received her Bachelors Degree from  Slade School of Fine Art, UCL in 2017. Then she enrolled to Royal College of Art, Painting, to complete Masters Degree. Was awarded with Audrey Wykeham Prize and Bloomberg New Contemporaries prize in 2019.
