Specializing in work built up upon layers, Mehretu draws her energy from modern city life. Her works are at a large scale and the gestural marks are meant to tell an infinite number of narratives about the grungy cities dotting the planet.
Most recently spotted in Performa, which is a show that features works using twentieth century methods in the twenty-first century to create all kinds of unique and modern art.
