Ahavani Mullen: Transforming Your Medium
In other pieces, she uses limestone, talc, and polystyrene to create forms on the wall that look like tectonic plates or heavy, hard stone. However, these forms are actually as light as Styrofoam, and are further abstracted by the artist’s use of unnatural colors. What may look like natural earth and stone becomes alien by Mullen’s use of neon greens and blues. Complicating her use of materials further, Mullen also uses encaustic on the surface of her work.
