New Gallery

I am thrilled to announce that I will now be represented by CIRCA Gallery in Minneapolis. I have been a big fan of CIRCA for over 20 years, as they’ve consistently shown such strong contemporary abstract work. It is especially satisfying to circle back to connections with my first home. There is much gratitude to go around for this!

This is one of 15 works that are now available through them:

Sonorous, Ahavani Mullen, Oil, cold wax, graphite, 30 x 30"

Silence Speaks

I’d love to share some photos of the installation of Silence Speaks, my recent solo show at Morpho Gallery. Many thanks to all who showed up despite it being winter in Chicago. A very special thanks to my sister Bridget for her assistance with installation, as well as David Leigh at Morpho Gallery. So grateful to you both! Many good things have come as a result of this exhibition. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

About the exhibit:

Silence Speaks presents a collection of works by Ahavani Mullen which have evolved from a place of silence. Navigating the seen and the unseen, these pieces explore how the earth plane and the higher, inner worlds blend with each other and complete each other. The result are relatively permanent documents, those that contain not only a record of an experience, but also the lingering fragrance of an impermanent consciousness.

Seven

Yea! Seven of my mini encaustic paintings on wood blocks were selected by Juror Shawn Hill, critic for Art New England for this exhibition which takes place alongside this years’ International Encaustic Conference. I am honored to be included among many greats in the world of encaustic painting. If you can’t make it out to gorgeous Provincetown, the link below has photos of all work included.
