April 5 - 26, 2014

Take a virtual tour of Mallory's show here.

On April 5th, Wally Workman Gallery will present, for the first time, a solo show with New Orleans painter Mallory Page. Page works with color, composition and technique to deliver a purely visual interpretation of her interests in the push and pull of cognitive dissonance. The paintings show strong elements of design, fascinations with light, color, and layering. The works nature is to create an environment from within.

Love and specifically being inspired by love guides this body of work. Over the years I studied artists writings and discovered how they have interpreted and used love. Some were historically reckless using the fuel from one new love to another. New love, crazy love, true love, self love, love lost and passion each hold a different connotation of profound inspiration. Love can compel feelings that can be intensely moving or profoundly destructive.

I work with sensory, often in monochromatic fields. Abstraction is mystical. For some painters, it is the only way to release the deepest intangible thought from within. Agnes Martin wrote, “Every note composed represents a titanic human effort.” I want my work to pulse with fluidity and light so that they act as streams of thought and ultimately convey a certain sensuality.
