From strange hybrid “Lovebirds” to disembodied mouths and monumental bubblegum, the subjects of Assistant Professor of Art Julia Randall’s drawings seduce the viewer. The exhibition “Oral Fixations” is a ten-year retrospective of the meticulous, hyperrealist drawings by Ms. Randall. As the artist explains, she sees the mouth as “the threshold of the id,” and her works are “simultaneously erotic and humorous, beautiful and repulsive.” The exhibition title nods towards Sigmund Freud’s theory of oral-stage fixation, but Ms. Randall’s often monumental drawings go beyond psychoanalysis, presenting surreal, sensual, even visceral images, while surprising with a sense of humor.

“Unfortunately, no one can be told what Goggles is. You have to see it for yourself.” — Morpheus (The Matrix, 1999)
Monday Tuesday, everyone! I know you’re all ambivalent/stressed/excited for finals, so I’ve been thinking that Wesleying needs to provide our readers with a creative outlet. Pent up energy isn’t healthy, y’know? So I present to you: Goggles.
Goggles is a fun little tool that let’s you see an extra layer on top of any website you’re browsing. Just drag the goggles button to your bookmarks bar, click the button bookmark, and then a canvas and a set of tools will magically appear on the page. Above you’ll see an example of one of Goggles’s more active drawings. Here’s what Wesleying looks like right now:
