Lot Essay

‘I have [an] understanding of architectural language and its history. I’ve also grown with my language and am able to put a lot more thought into how to approach a particular idea or perspective or experience and translate that…There’s this big part of the language that’s so intuitive or self-conscious… while I think about images and I look at images and have them all over the studio, I’m using abstraction to make the work (J. Mehretu, quoted in, L. Chua, BOMB-Artists in Conversation, reproduced at http://bombmagazine.org/article/2714/julie-mehretu).
