Juliana Paciulli

Paciulli_HeadshotJuliana Paciulli (b. 1980) is a Los Angeles-based artist who works in photography, video and three-dimensional objects. Her work explores the complex symbolic and linguistic
relationships that result from the absurdities embedded in popular media. Using the familiar formal vocabulary of advertising and cinema, her imagery mirrors the  inconsistencies within the American cultural experience. Her most recent body of work is a series of images that depict Caucasian female hands interacting with specific objects
against a beige background. Collectively titled, Uh-huh, these images use humor, gesture, and strategic placement of bright color to invite the viewer to question their own relationship to these cultural allegories.
Paciulli received her MFA from the University of California, Davis in 2004 and BFA, Magna Cum Laude, from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002. Solo exhibitions include: Are You Talking to Me at Greene Exhibitions in 2013, Sensors at Las Cienegas Projects in 2009 and The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Episode II at Black Dragon Society in 2005. Paciulli is represented by Greene Exhibitions in Los Angeles where she will have her next solo exhibition in January 2016. In 2009, she was selected by Rineke Dijkstra to attend the Atlantic Center for the Arts, which was funded by a Joan Mitchell Foundation Residency Fellowship. She is currently adjunct faculty in the art department at Chapman University in Orange, California.
