I am thrilled to share my newest body of work with you at the Brickton Art Center, in my two-person show with fellow artist Kari Hall, who also works in encaustic paint. Both of us explore light in our work, and the ways that it can be revealed in both its seen and unseen forms.

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.
