Catherine Mulligan, Save-a-lot (day)
Mulligan takes her subjects from her experiences in the city of Philadelphia and typically uses photographs for reference when she paints. She creates detailed underpaintings and uses multiple glazes, building up forms gradually and incrementally. Save-a-lot depicts an unapologetic portrayal of the contemporary urban landscape populated with fast food chains, supermarkets, and advertisements of all kinds. The dissolving forms also suggest the rapid speed of contemporary life where information and communication is shared on a global level instantaneously.
