Julie Mehretu: workday video

Filmed in her Berlin studio, Julie Mehretu discusses the ups and downs of her daily studio practice

"(Julie) Mehretu’s paintings and drawings refer to elements of mapping and architecture, achieving a calligraphic complexity that resembles turbulent atmospheres and dense social networks. Architectural renderings and aerial views of urban grids enter the work as fragments, losing their real-world specificity and challenging narrow geographic and cultural readings. The ... wax-like surfaces—built up over weeks and months in thin translucent layers—have a ... spatial depth, with formal qualities of light and space made all the more complex by Mehretu’s delicate depictions of fire, explosions, and perspectives in both two and three dimensions..."
