Júlia Godoy (b. Goiás, Brasil, 1996) is a Brazilian artist based in Los Angeles, California who works with handmade pigment and paint made from foraged natural materials. She collects bones, ash, plants, soil, and insects from
her direct surroundings in order to process them into pigment by hand using a mortar and pestle. Her pigments serve as a link to connect physical land to intangible memory, and her work is centered around her experiences as a Brazilian immigrant. In addition, Júlia's artwork surveys her dreams, forms of communication, and human interrelatedness. She believes the physical materials
she works with hold a memory of their own, and she has become fascinated with how fragments of their recollections echo throughout her paintings.
