Paintings by Julie Mehretu

March 19, 2014

Julie Mehretu's large-scale, mixed media paintings create a dizzying field of layered landscapes to construct colorful and complex abstractions and lines. Drawing from historical and fictional references to architecture, urban planning, societal structures of power, and personal narrative, Mehretu's intricate, semi-abstract works are loaded with heavily conceptual imagery that is as informative as it is aesthetically rich. Here we have some works from the last twelve years.
