Julie Mallis’s works are altered perceptions – landscapes with copious, intricate line work and colors. Often starting by hand, she uses paints and ink to create a complex image. These images go through a penultimate phase of digital manipulation. From this point, it becomes a screen print, a part of a video, or a prototype for an installation.
Transformed Linearities is a solo exhibition by Julie Mallis, opening June 6 at Assemble Gallery during UnBlurred. This exhibition will feature watercolor screen prints, digital prints, video art and an interactive projection installation. The prints are of abstract landscapes filled with hypnagogic lines, bold palettes and smooth shapes. The prints also serve as prototypes for the installation, a piece that invites gallery visitors to come inside and become active contributors of the work by attaching pre-cut materials and shapes. Additionally, a colorful projection lands on the installation, adding to its overall atmosphere.
The 1 hour black and white video projection on the front of the gallery contrasts sharply with the flood of colors throughout the rest of the exhibition. Unified throughout all of the work is overlapping layers found in the videos, prints and drawings. The layers build on top of each other to create the final composition. Each layer is a discovery that uncovers another piece of perspective.
