Julie Mehretu: Grey Paintings
With a poem by Patricia Smith and a new essay by artist Glenn Ligon, Grey Paintings focuses on Julie Mehretu's work from 2012–17. This catalog features the artist’s abstract style, infused with violet references to contemporary events like the Syrian Civil War. A combination of rigorous, geometrical outlines and expressive brushstrokes, Mehretu’s paintings offer a vibrant depiction of a world oscillating between order and destruction.
