Mallory Page: Unexplained Celebration

January 7 - 28, 2017

Take a virtual tour of the show here.

This latest body of paintings by Mallory Page plays heavily with neutral colors balanced with richly hued paintings that are categorized by the artist as her celebration sensory. While Page’s work and color inspiration comes from a place of simplicity the context of the body as a whole contains an underlying theme of the unexplained celebration in periods of a lifetime.

Some canvas feels effortlessly perfected while others are much more muddled and raw than previous work. “I am headed somewhere different- somewhere much more focused on simplicity and reality. I chose the word celebration because it leaves a lot of ambiguity on the table- you can celebrate almost anything. In fact, some sentiments can seem perfectly lovely but actually have a very twisted reality. I am more or less sugar coating a less sugar coated version of myself. It’s bittersweet."
