Living most of her life in relative isolation on the island of Menorca has allowed Mullen the unique opportunity to work in a quiet and peaceful space, with very few distractions. Her work is intended to draw the observer into her meditative space, where light and color merge into visceral sensations. Now living in DC, Mullen draws fresh inspiration from the exciting challenges her new urban environment presents. In her new paintings for Susan Calloway Fine Arts, mental markings, internal snap shots and colliding landscapes breathe life into layers on canvas. Time, light, and experience inspire constantly changing interpretations -- an angsty, yet bizarrely tranquil questioning of "This American Life.” Opening reception: March 31, 6-8pm; on view March 31 - April 29, 2017.
