ABOUT THE WORK
The carefully constructed layers of Mallory's work cleverly draw the eye and take the viewer on a journey. The naturalistic forms allude to the duality of the nightshade plant, both medicinal and poisonous. Her use of color transports us to the blue hours that pass in the very early morning, that eerie detachment of the quiet hours gives us pause for reflection. The monochromatic exploration of deep blues is reminiscent of the German Expressionist fascination with blue as the color of spirit and soul. Our searching gaze is ultimately turned back upon ourselves and the realization of the journey this work has taken us on.
