Julie Mehretu

Since we are going to be talking about Julie Mehretu in class, I thought I would post some of her beautiful paintings! Her work focuses on systems and the movement into the in-between. Currently working in New York City, she has become a prolific artist in the contemporary art world. Mehretu’s work is generally made up of paintings and drawings. It is made of fragments, movements and layers, and represents a broad range of influences. From her smaller movements to her large-scale explosions, Mehretu brings an expressive visual language into the art world that deals with reality today as much as it deals with the biography of herself as an artist in the twenty-first century. Her work has made itself known in the branded galleries and museums around the United States and in Europe. Her work has also made its debut in the auction houses in New York and London. She continues to stand strong as a contemporary artist in the twenty-first century and continues to create narratives of time, space, and the in-between.
