Julie's New Boy Paintings

Self Portrait as Boy in Flight 2010, oil on canvas, 52 x 68 inches by Julie Heffernan
Julie Heffernan is painting herself as a boy now and I quite like them. Her works are ambitious and visionary. There's a nice sense of order to her dream-chaos. She's got the painting chops to pull off complicated imagery such as the one above - from her "Boy, Oh Boy" exhibit which opens April 29-June 5, 2010 at PPOW Gallery, 511 West 25th Street, Room 301, NYC. Here's a LINK to the gallery and a few more images.
