    9/11 Memorial & Museum, New York City

    Highly influenced by the New York Abstract Expressionist movement in the 1960’s, Michael Mulhern’s surfaces were heavily marked by pooling paint, drips and curves, paintings of tremendous vibrancy and depth and nuance. In the years immediately following September 11, Mulhern decamped to a temporary studio in Long Island City, where he began experimenting with paints from his Cedar Street studio – paints mixed and infused with the ash from the lost Trade Towers.

  • Mulhern – Fedette MoCA


    December 12 – February 20, 2015
    1315 MASS MoCA Way, North Adams MA

    CYNTHIA-REEVES opens an exhibition of work by Michael Mulhern (1940-2012), a painter fully immersed in the tradition of Abstract Expressionism, and the site-based installations of Lorrie Fredette. Michael Mulhern was intent on discovering the palette available in the spectrum of black to white, augmented by the special patina of aluminum paint. With this narrow portal into ‘color’ Mulhern created hundreds of canvases and works on paper, all of which to him read as inquiries into color painting. Lorrie Fredette creates site-specific investigations that examine beauty, harmony and comfort to comprehend the incomprehensible aspects of infection, epidemics and plague.
