About Julius DC Bautista

 
 
  • Biography
    My work blends my fondness for contemporary portraiture with elements of my roots in illustration. The result is simultaneously formal and abstract, dreamlike, whimsical, and surreal. The narratives I depict never really exist in the real, physical, tangible world. My portraits and figures are captured in suspended motion, embellished with frivolity.

    My process is iterative and intuitive.  I try to feel the emotions I try to convey, and it can take a shot or two before I get it right. Like method acting, there is a devotion to the work that transcends sanity.  You willingly suspend one belief to visit another.

    My narratives are intentionally ambiguous.  Making sense of a complex emotion takes time, and is often not a linear process.  It can be imagined as constantly trying to establish order but failing to do so.  The work often contains inherently pessimistic elements and there's a dark humor to that which our generation is all too familiar with.
