Mallory Page: Garden of Ambition
October 7 – December 17, 2017
Opening: Saturday Oct 14th @ 6pm - 8pm
Longview Museum of Fine Arts was pleased to welcome artist Mallory Page and her abstract monochromatic paintings to Longview.
The Garden of Ambition was a solo exhibition of large-scale, monochromatic artworks by New Orleans-based artist Mallory Page. Featuring 17 new works, the exhibition offers a sophisticated study in perception, exploring how measured changes in color and light can effect shifts in visual understanding.
From the Artist:
“I work with color, composition and technique to deliver a purely visual interpretation of my continual struggles and fascinations with cognitive dissonance and automatism. Which is why my paintings translate a bevy of emotions so that even the most calming works demand your attention with forceful strength. With strong elements of design, fascinations with light, color, layering and nostalgia the work creates an environment from within. It is deeply sensitive and naturally intuitive but I insist that it first and foremost embodies some form of resting place from thought. I work with sensory because it’s not meant to evoke too much thought. I myself struggle in a world with increasingly too much to process and with less and less tactile or human intricacies. This is how I stay connected with inner beauty and true projections of oneself.”
