Michelle Muldrow uses the aqueous and graphic casein paint to give fresh painterly color to her urban landscapes. Her scenes describe the buzzing light and glinting metal, linoleum, and synthetic fabrics of department stores.
Edited from her website:
Muldrow explores the the landscape genre and what it means to be picturesque. She contrasts the idea of the picturesque by incorporating it into her depictions of urban and suburban decay. She paints the idea of the sublime as it might be conveyed by cathedral architecture, by the light and airy spaces lit by stained glass windows. Only here she turns the idea of the sublime on it’s consumerist head by using as her subject the chaos and clutter of a big block store.
