Must See: Unwrapping the Layers of Julie Mehretu- Abstraction I

The technical, The spacial, The political

Flocks of Fish, or Birds
System of creation, where Chaos is System, very systematized chaos
Layers and Layers of: Passion, Time, Humanity, Social and Cultural behavior, Governments
These Layers Unravels, Close and Far, Technical and Manual, Brushes and Rulers, Astonished and
Taking your time.

Her Artwork and thus herself, in my momental PoV, faces you with the Biggest fears of all:
The Illusion of Being in Control, when the fact is that you have to Let-go, and Give it a Time to Grow and Manifest itself into you.
