An exhibition of large scaled paintings from the studio of Jerelyn Hanrahan.
Jerelyn Hanrahan began her artistic career as a painter, and via an international and rigorous career her studio practice has broadened, integrating sculpture, interactive conceptual public art projects, and porcelain works.
The series of paintings currently on view in the Supersized exhibition were inspired by the artists research of biological illustrations of cell structures. The imagery for these paintings were developed intuitively using a mark making process until the forms were found and embellished. These paintings were executed in Jerelyn Hanrahan’s top floor studio located at 195 Chrystie Street in New York in the late 1980’s.
